Leadville Silver Rush 50/15 MTB
July 7 – 9, 2023
Take on 50 miles that will put your skills and endurance to the test. Technical climbs and descents are met with the glorious mountain views of Leadville. 8,000 feet of elevation gain over these 50 miles presents an excellent test for the Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB in August. Test your limits with the Silver Rush 50 MTB.
The weekend will also have a 15.5-mile MTB race on the Sunday 9:00 a.m! This race will start and finish on the same course as the Silver Rush 50 MTB. This race provides an excellent entry option into mountain bike racing and will, of course, be accompanied by the tremendous Leadville views along the way.
The 50-mile out-and-back course takes racers through the historic mining district on the east side of Leadville. Primarily on dirt roads, first set by miners and their burros, it will begin at the Cloud City Ski Hut (located just below Colorado Mountain College on Hwy 24 on the South end of Leadville). None of the roads used will be closed to vehicle traffic, so please use caution. The route will take runners by and between many grand and historic gold and silver mines.

From the very beginning, volunteers have made the Silver Rush 50 MTB possible. We truly appreciate all that our great volunteers do to make our races run smoothly and to make the racers’ experience unforgettable. If you are going to be in town for the Silver Rush 50 MTB, we would love for you to join the family and pitch in. Thanks in advance for your help — we couldn’t do it without you!
