“This famed CO sufferfest takes runners out & back over the formidable Hope Pass.”— Jason Smith
Featured Race - Aug 17, 2019
1. From mile 3.5-4.3 (also 95.2-96). This is labeled as "Railroad Service Road" on Google Maps
2. From mile 23.5-24.75 (also 74.6-75.8). This is a section that goes through a field between CR300 and CR11 (Halfmoon Road).
The primary obstacle is the formidable 12,600' Hope Pass, near the apogee of the course. That section is simultaneously the most beautiful and most painful part of the race. Hope will threaten to drain just that from you as you dig deep to get up and over on both the outbound & return.
The notorious Powerline section is the 1st and last significant climb of the course. This brutal section accounts for more than 4,000' of vertical change and is characterized by loose, rutted, consistently steep doubletrack following, well... a powerline.
The final crusher is the long stretch of road back into Leadville.
