This year, Strava run Pro Ian Sharman secured the overall title with a mere 20-minute lead on competitor Nick Clark. Ian placed fourth at the first two races and bumped it up for the win at Leadville. In the final race at Wasatch, he took second place, rounding out the Grand Slam with a record-breaking time of 69 hours and 49 minutes.
There is something to be said about the number of compelling nominations we received for the Leadville 100 entry giveaway. Over 400 people took the time to nominate friends, teammates, coaches, family members and leaders in their community for the opportunity to race in Colorado this summer.
