The 30th Edition of the Leadville Trail 100 in photos.

There is nothing quite like watching a 100 mile race unfold throughout the course of a day. Exciting, emotional and often times painful to watch.

The following is a collection of photos that I captured along the course appropriately coined “The Race Across the Sky.”
