Our hearts are heavy, and we are deeply saddened by the loss of lives in Boulder. We will cry and mourn as a community and State. Not just in Boulder, but all of us, including you, have a calling to create the future we believe in. A regenerative future where we all have a responsibility for Leadville and Lake County.

Today we shed tears. Tomorrow and next month, we must gather our strength to continue to create the future we all believe in for this community.

Leadville grit is real and I love it.

Leadville Trail 100 Legacy Foundation

When Ken Chlouber & Merilee Maupin created the Leadville Trail 100 Legacy Foundation in 2002, they saw one single need, had one single purpose - to provide a way for athletes to give back. As the Leadville Trail 100 races grew in popularity so did the Leadville Trail 100 ‘Family’. Athletes and their supporters wanted to contribute back to Leadville, because Leadville has played such a big part in what makes these races so special.

Initially it was small contributions and donations from long time Leadville racers that went to support some of the basics for those in need. But today the Legacy Foundation hosts a series of robust programs, with the goal to make Leadville a better place to live, work and raise a family.

We appreciate the Legacy Foundation's continued support of the LLCEDC and our community. Visit https://www.leadvilletrail100legacy.org for more info.
