The legendary "Race Across The Sky" 100-mile run is where it all started back in 1983. This is it. The race where legends are created and limits are tested. One hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain — from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet. You will give the mountain respect, and earn respect from all. From the official Leadville race website.
'The Leadville shoe', or 1210 - championed by such runners as Anton Krupicka, brings comfort to the equation. 8mm drop for support when tired but freedom from heel striking.
Grip for tracks and trails, designed to allow hours on your feet without impact damage. Suitable as a 'door to trail' shoe, it will cope with all but open country.
Ultra runners might give it some strong consideration as it's making a big splash, first in the US(having created it for races like the Leadville 100mile Ultra) and now very much in the UK, with Ultra Distance Trail Running growing in popularity.
