While the typical Arizona monsoon pattern has been fairly quiet in 2019, the event does have a Weather Plan in place. Expect cool morning temperatures, day time temps in the mid 70’s and late-day rain. We will keep an eye on the forecast for race day, and let you know if there are any storms expected.
There will be fifty (50) Qualifying Slots available to the Cowboy/Cowgirl category race finishers (under 8.5 hrs) for the 2020 Leadville MTB 100. Almost half of those slots will be available through a lottery drawing at the Awards Ceremony at 4 pm Saturday afternoon. Do not leave early – stay for Awards, and maybe get the Coin.
Maybe not ready for the 100 mile race? We offer shorter distance races for individuals – 25 and 50 mile. And we have the Rustler category for 50 mile duo teams – that’s 25 miles each! Certainly, something for everyone! More information here.
