    This race was my second time completing the 50 mile distance. It was significantly harder than the first 50 I did with about 7500′ of elevation gain all above 10,000 feet in elevation and topping out at 12,000 feet on 4 separate occasions. It’s an out-and-back on old mining roads which can be pretty rocky in spots, but it’s marked really well so you never have to worry about getting lost. The Leadville Race Series puts on great events that are definitely “big” compared to most ultra races I’ve done with professional photography and a lot of spectators at the aid stations and finish areas. The scenery was great – especially during miles 18-20 and 28-30. Overall I really liked this race, but definitely be prepared for a lot of climbing (and therefore a lot of walking) and a VERY long day!
