The Leadville 100 2013 race will feature more than 1,000 runners passing through Leadville, Colo.

According to a press release, a number of mountain bike riders took part in a race last week, drawing 2,200 riders from 50 states and 35 countries.

They competed at elevations ranging from “10,152 to 12,424 feet over 100 miles of challenging Colorado Rockies terrain,” the press release said.

Alban Lakata of Austria and Sally Bigham of Great Britain won the 2013 Leadville Trail 100 MTB contest.

“Once again this year, participants competed against a stellar field of some of the country’s best mountain bikers on the 103-mile course. At the end of the day and all records aside, simply crossing the finish line was a victory to most,” Josh Colley, Leadville race director.
