In Search of the Sublime - Leadville

The Leadville 100, an ultra marathon consisting of an out and back 100 mile running race set in the land surrounding Leadville, Colorado. There is no prize money or mass media coverage - the winners get belt buckles. With a cutoff time of 30 hours, competitors go constantly without sleep.

Anyone can enter the race. One can only imagine what motivates these 850 individuals running at an altitude over 10,000ft to continue. Some competitors say the Leadville 100 was one of the most difficult things they have ever done. Completion of the race is an epic accomplishment.
