Features Views

Overview

Run through the historic mining district's challenging old mining roads and trails, and hit a high of 13,185 feet at Mosquito Pass during the Blueprint for Athletes Leadville Trail Marathon or Heavy Half Marathon. The views will leave you breathless, if you're not already.

Need to Know

The snow route is an alternate route that is used dependent on snow coverage each year. There is a separate regular route that is used if the snow is melted by race day.

Description

The race course is out and back through the historic mining district on the east side of Leadville. The race start will be at 8 a.m. in front of the Sixth Street Gym. The course is primarily on old mining roads and trails, topping out at 13,185 ft. at Mosquito Pass. You may be crossing snow on the course. The course will be well marked with fluorescent pink-and-black-striped ribbon and chalk arrows.
