Before we dive into nonstop UTMB coverage here in the Electric Cable Car headquarters we shouldn’t forget this weekend’s Leadville 100 race in Colorado.

According to official 2022 Entrants List there are 816 starters total. (These numbers are pulled from Webscorer.) I knew that Leadville is a big race, but this number still surprised me. This makes Leadville one of the biggest ultras in the US, and certainly one off the biggest 100 mile races in North America.

  • 625 men – 77%
  • 174 women – 21%
  • 17 other – 2%

Another ‘not great’ gender split here. But gotta give kudos that Leadville added the ‘other’ category and is allowing folks to register as non-binary, para female and para male. The future is diverse, colorful, and beautiful.
