WHAT: On Saturday, June 14th, Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life CompanySM, will bring hundreds of runners to kick-off the Leadville 100 Race Series in Colorado with the Leadville Trail Marathon and Heavy Half Marathon.

“This is a great kick off to the summer trail race season,” said Leadville 100 Race Series Director Josh Colley. “The Leadville Trail Marathon and Heavy Half are fun and challenging trail races and also provide excellent high altitude training opportunities for runners training for the Leadville 50 or 100 mile events.”

The Leadville Trail Marathon and Heavy Half Marathon courses run through the historic mining district’s challenging old mining roads and trails, and hit a high of 13,185 feet at Mosquito Pass. The views will leave participants breathless. The marathon will mark its 15th year in 2014, while the Heavy Half will mark its ninth.

Fewer than 200 spots remain so registration is limited. Online registration will close on June 12 at noon. In-person registration will be offered June 13 from 11:00 a.m. — 7:00 p.m. Register and find additional information at www.leadvilleraceseries.com
