Gunnison, Colorado resident Tim Parr won his first ever 100 mile race this past weekend, taking the title at the Leadville 100. Parr posted the sixth-fastest time ever on the 100 mile trail race. Last year’s winner Anton Krupicka had a commanding lead but dropped out of the race around the 78 mile mark. This opened the door for Parr, who took the win in 17:27:23. After the race Parr said as much as he liked the race he would likely never do it again.
In the women’s race it was Lynette Clemons, a native of Leadville, that took the title in a time of 20:58:01.
The 100 mile trail race takes place over 10,000 feet altitude and contains a total of 14,958 of total elevation gain/loss.
