A Letter from our Founders, Ken & Merilee

A Letter from our Founders, Ken & Merilee

Dear Leadville Trail 100 Family,

   35 years ago you came to Leadville to help an economically devastated and struggling town and to test your resolve and grit over 100 miles against what most said couldn't be done.  The mountains were too high and too steep.  The oxygen was nonexistent.  Cats couldn't even live here.  Well, you did it.  You climbed the mountains.  You found air where there was none.  You finished that 100 miles of Colorado's highest and toughest.  And, you did it in less than 30 hours. And too, cats do quite well here.  You adopted Leadville and Leadville adopted you.  We became family.  We, Ken & Merilee, were blessed to be your mother, father, brother, sister.  Ken ran with you.  Finished with you.  And occasionally didn't make the 100 miles with you.  Merilee was there with you and for you, your family, your crews, all the way; never leaving the finish line until all the chicks were back in the nest.  She held your babies, petted your puppies and bandaged that scraped knee or elbow, while Ken told you to "rub some dirt on it".

   Well, we're back....
