The legendary "Race Across The Sky" 100-mile run is where it all started back in 1983. This is it. The race where legends are created and limits are tested. One hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain — from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet. 

Meet the QC Leadville 6

The Story.


Training for the Leadville Race Series “Race Across the Sky” 100-Mile Run on August 20 in Leadville, Colorado has given us many benefits beyond just the physical. Required to complete this 100-mile run in 30 hours or less at elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet, training for this race has certainly been the ultimate test of dedication and perseverance. 


HAVlife™ is pleased to announce that while training and preparing for their race across the sky, the QC Leadville 6 will be raising money in support of the HAVlife™ mission.  The QC Leadville 6 is comprised of six Quad Cities runners who have been training together in preparation for the big race.


Their goal is to raise $25,000 by race day on August 20. To donate to support this group and the HAVlife™ mission, or to learn more about the QC Leadville 6, click here.


HAVlife™ thanks this group for their support! Good luck, team!
