Leadville Night Run – Mark Your Calendars

A Day in the LifeLeave a Comment

Attention Leadville runners and friends,

I will be hosting another annual LT100 Night Run this year. Same deal as last year, mostly. Show up at my house in Leadville around dinner time. Hang out, fuel up (lightly), then lace up. We will shuttle runners 4 miles over to Fish Hatchery to save you from dreaded pavement miles. We will then run 20+ miles of the Leadville course in the inbound direction finishing at my house. We will lose daylight during the Powerline climb so you will get to try out all your night gear before race day. This is a group run, not a race. We will be spreading out with varied paces but then gathering back up at various points along the way. The course will not be marked but its not hard to follow, especially with company.

The date is August 3th, 2013. This is also the weekend of the Boom Days festival in Leadville. So bring the family and make a day/weekend out of it.

I have posted the event on my RunLeadville.com site. I would appreciate it if you can go there and RSVP so I know how big I need to plan for:


After the run (around midnight), we will gather inside my house for food and drinks and lively conversation. My wife will cook and supply various food products but you will be encouraged to bring something to share. More on that later for those that RSVP.

Our showers will be available. You are also free to camp in our yard. I have limited space indoors.

Hope to see a bunch of you there! Its becoming a classic.
