As with many races and events, the Leadville 100 is going virtual for 2020. While the in-person race is typically sold out each year, the virtual event is offering unlimited registrations.
Participants will have 8 weeks to climb 100,000 feet on their bikes anywhere in the world. Registration starts at $100 and proceeds go toward funding Covid-19 food relief for the Leadville area. Finishers will receive a 100,000 FT Challenge belt buckle and t-shirt in the mail. It sounds like participants can log climbing however they like, all on the honor system.
The cycling challenges are scheduled as follows.
SOLO RUN & RUN RELAYS : Saturday, June 13th to Saturday, August 22nd, 2020
SOLO RIDE & RIDE RELAYS: Saturday, June 20th to Saturday, August 15th, 2020
