About Cloud City Multi-Stage:
Founded in 2017 by Penelope Boettiger, the Cloud City Multi-Stage ultra is the first in a series by Legendary Race Series. A rugged, challenging, high altitude race in Leadville, Colorado with no aid stations and no drop bags–only water, medical attention, and tents are provided. The rest is carried on your own back the whole way—7 days over 173 miles. Difficult? Absolutely. Intimidating? Maybe. Impossible? Definitely not! With $15,000 in cash prizes for “cloud runners” (including added money if a woman wins the overall), and generous cutoffs for “cloud hikers”, this is a bucket list race. Early Bird pricing is currently in effect until August 31, 2018. Clearly stated pregnancy deferral policy also in effect!
