If you got notified this week that you didn’t get picked in the Leadville 100 lottery, don’t despair. If you have an extra $975 and maybe some quick phone call skills, you can still get in this year.
Monday, February 15th, at 9 AM mountain time, registration for the Carmichael Training System camps will open and must be done by phone. There are 3 different weekend camps. I don’t know how many spots are available in each camp but in his newsletter today, Chris Carmichael said he expects them to fill up before the end of Monday.
The cost of the 2 day camps is $1250 and includes the Leadville 100 entry fee. Of course the extra $975 gets you 2 days with top notch coaches and time riding the Leadville 100 course.
One interesting thing about the camps is you can’t register for them unless you registered for the Leadville 100. It sounds like most of the slots are for people that got denied entry and you’ll have to provide proof you were denied entry. There will also be a limited number of spots for those that did get accepted into the race.
