Cool Leadville 100 Trail Run Report and Videos

What is it like to run your first 100 mile trail run at the Leadville 100 trail run?

What is it like to crew your first 100 mile race?

Fellow Texan Ken ( @ if you believe you can’t you are right), shares with us his 100 mile adventure with an engaging race report along with videos that showcase the sights and sounds at crew aid-stations along the course. Good stuff! Having yet to run a 100, this stuff is inspiring and educational.

The videos contain mostly aid-station footage so you won’t see much actual running but I think it is a kind of cool behind-the-scenes view of the team effort involved to finish within 30 hours.

Enjoy!

You can also check out Ken’s inspiring and emotional race report here.

Also first-timer crew captain (Ken’s wife), created a crew report that is a good read as well.

The human spirit is an amazing thing!
