Overview

STAGE 3
25 miles/40 kilometres
3000 ft/900 m gain
3 Check Points | Run 6 | GU Run 3- Cross the Divide

Our longest stage, stage 3, has moderate elevation gain, with the largest climb out of the way early in the stage. After 2.5 miles on the pavement out of downtown Leadville you'll climb steeply on four-wheel drive road to the summit of the first climb. Descend again on doubletrack into the first checkpoint. A more gradual climb on doubletrack takes you onto Ski Cooper, where you descend to Checkpoint 2 in the ski area (Ski Cooper) parking lot. You'll cross the highway at Tennessee Pass onto the Continental Divide. From there you can look forward to a long rolling descent. You'll be running on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail into Camp Hale. Once you hit the gravel flats in Camp Hale you have about three miles of gravel ahead of you, which will test your mental toughness. You finish at Nova Guides, where the camp is waiting.

Early Start Option will be available to runners at 6:30am. Please check in at the timing tent no later than 6:15am.
