Cheer on Dave Peterman, as he works on his high elevation race, Leadville 100. This is # 3 of 4 for the Grand Slam.
Popularly called "The Race Across the Sky". A very high elevation race- One hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain — from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet, at Hope Pass.
Leadville, Colorado is a very cool little town. For a cheap (and clean!!) place to stay, check out the Leadville Hostel. However, don't try to get a room there during any big event, whether it's the mountain bike race or foot race, the hostel is booked through 2014 for these weeks. But give Wild Bill a call, he may have room for you, and it's a cool place to stage out of for running/hiking 14'ers in the area.
