Leadville Trail 100: Cool Forecast Bodes Well

Runners signed on for this weekend’s Race Across the Sky had better have plenty of warm clothes in their drop bags.

The daytime forecast is benign.  Saturday’s predicted high in Leadville is 65 F – a perfect running temperature, with only 20 % chance of rain showers.  Everything changes on Saturday night: when the temperature could dip to 35.  Lows at higher altitude could be below freezing.
