Join the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) for the race of all races -the Leadville Trail 100 MTB! One hundred and three miles across the high-altitude, extreme terrain of the Colorado Rockies, this event was created for only the most determined athletes. Starting at 10,152 feet and climbing to 12,424 feet, you’ll be challenged to catch your breath — while the views try to take it away!

Everyone deserves to feel the power of crossing a finish line. By joining #TeamCAF, you will help fund the adaptive equipment, training and mentoring needed to get challenged athletes in the game - and to the finish line. Money raised will help the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) provide individuals with physical challenges with the tools necessary to find success in sports — and in life.
