Parr Takes His First, And Last, Leadville 100 Win

Leadville 100 Trail RunLast year’s winner dropped out with 22 miles to go.

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.
