    2013 Leadville Race Series Crowns 43 Leadman and Leadwoman

    Participants endured five events covering a distance of more than 280 miles to receive honor; New record set

    Withstanding some of the most demanding conditions anywhere in the U.S., including rugged Colorado Rockies terrain and ascents up to 13,185 feet, 34 men and 9 women earned the title as 2013 Leadman or Leadwoman, produced and presented by Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM). During a span of just 50 days, from June 29 to August 17, an elite field of 95 men and women began the grueling five-event challenge.

    In order to earn the title of Leadman or Leadwoman, racers must have competed in the Leadville Trail Marathon, Leadville Silver Rush 50-Mile Mountain Bike or Silver Rush 50-Mile Trail Run, Leadville Trail 100 MTB, Leadville 10K Run, and Leadville Trail 100 Run. Additionally, participants needed to complete all five events within the designated cut-off times (66 hours total for those who opted for the Silver Rush Run and 60 hours total for the Silver Rush MTB) to secure their title.

    Male Leadman Travis Macy (Evergreen, Colo.) set a new Leadman record this year with a total time of 36 hours, 20 minutes, besting Tim Wagneer’s (Golden, Colo.) cumulative time in 2012 of 37 hours, 46 minutes.
