Join us for the virtual 2021 Leadville Loppet!  

About The Leadville Loppet

The Leadville Loppet held its first race back in 2003. The race was conceived by a few volunteers and put on by an event management class at Colorado Mountain College (CMC). The initial focus of the race was to showcase the newly dedicated Mineral Belt Trail and to utilize the race as a fundraising opportunity. With the unveiling of Leadville’s newest jewel, it was understood that it would be of the utmost importance to have funds available to help care for the trail. 

This year's Leadville Loppet will look a little different. In the interest of the health and safety of our community, we are going virtual this year. From February 1st through February 28th, log your skied kilometers in RunSignUp from wherever you are and once a milestone distance is reached, you will receive a fun Leadville-themed digital badge via email. Register to participate and donate an additional $25 to receive a Melanzana Leadville Loppet hat. 100% of the proceeds will go towards winter grooming of the Mineral Belt Trail. We hope that you’ll join us in celebrating the beauty of Leadville and cross country skiing from wherever you are in the world! 

In order to register, you'll need to create a profile within RunSignUp. Here, you'll log your kilometers from February 1st - February 28th. We welcome you to log any distance - classic, skate, or if you are skiing with your pup! Our skijoring friends can log kilometers via skate ski. Our Leadville-theme badges will range all the way from 5K to 200K - you'll receive an email once you reach a milestone by logging your activity. Whether or not you can make it to the Mineral Belt Trail this winter, we welcome all to participate.
