Fun Fact: The race started in 1983 by founder Ken Chlouber as a last-ditch effort to save the town of Leadville after Climax mine laid off 3,000 people overnight, resulting in 3,000 out of a town population of 5000 without work. The town and community identity was struggling, and Ken wanted to put Leadville back on the map. He knew the idea needed to be a big one, something newsworthy. And so, came about the Leadville Trail 100 Run. 2018 will be the 36th running!
