Leadville 100: Race Team Report

the finish cropWe’d like to congratulate Rock/Creek Race Team member Matt Karzen for his recent finish at the Leadville Trail 100 ultramarathon. He’s provided us with a great blow-by-blow report from the race.
Leadville was gigantic. I went out monday prior and did some short hikes with my brother (4-5 miles) at around 10,000 ft. Four a.m. saturday 592 of us took off west from Leadville (also at 10,000 ft.) into the sawatch range. First 14 miles were dark, downhill and came easy. From Mayqueen aid station south and up over Sugarloaf pass the sun was rising, and despite the climb, the miles still came pretty easy
