Lamenting the fact that the Leadville Trail 100 is sold out this year? We are happy to announce that Herbalife is offering one Trail Runner reader entry into the 100-miler on August 16-17, 2014, as well as a four-night stay at Herbalife Base Camp in Leadville, several meals in town and, if needed, transport to/from the airport.
To be entered in our random drawing, just comment on this article by Wednesday, May 21, and tell us why you want to run the Leadville Trail 100 this year. Please note: This contest has already passed. Reader Nick Seymour was randomly chosen to win entry into this year’s Leadville Trail 100. (We’d originally selected another reader who was unable to accept the prize package, so on June 5, we randomly selected Nick Seymour as the new winner.) Thank you to all who took the time to comment!
