Leadville Trail 100 Qualifying Spots 

Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time. Please visit for complete details.



Online registration will close July 15 at midnight. In-person registration will be offered July 18 from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Northstar Village. If spots remain, in-person registration will be available at packet pickup on July 18, 2014 for an additional fee more than the final published price. Registration is available online here.
