Silver Rush 50
Need a nice challenge? Then forget this one. It’s nasty. Cut the Leadville Trail 100 in half. Remove all the easy parts. Throw in technical descents. Burning lungs. Wild animals. And you have a good understanding of what you’re about to get into.
The 50-mile out-and-back course takes racers through the historic mining district on the east side of Leadville, passing many grand and historic gold and silver mines. It will begin at the Cloud City Ski Hut (located just below Colorado Mountain College on Hwy. 24 on the south end of Leadville). None of the roads used will be closed to vehicle traffic, so please use caution. The courses will be well marked with fluorescent pink-and-black-striped ribbon and chalk arrows.
Race day starting at 7am at the race start.
EARLY Pickup: Friday, July 13, from 11am - 7pm at LT100 Race Headquarters, located at 316 Harrison Ave.
Cloud City Ski Hut just below Colorado Mountain College on Hwy. 24 South.
There is an 8-hour time limit with a 4-1/2 hour cut-off at halfway point.
Our desire is to see everyone finish, and we’ll support you as best we can to make that happen. However, if we do need to remove someone for missing the cut-off, the decision of the race official is final. Lake County Search and Rescue will be conducting sweep and providing on course medical support.
Beat the rush on Saturday morning! EARLY Packet Pickup: Friday, July 13, from 11am - 7pm at LT100 Race Headquarters, located at 213 Harrison Ave in downtown Leadville.
