YOU have a voice

Yesterday I posted a blog post about the Leadville 100. (It is Leadville week after all.) Only 70 of you managed to find and read the post, which pales in comparison to the typical average of 500. It's not something I broadcast or shared as normal. I just typed and plopped it there. In short.. I posted MY thoughts on the continued issues that plague the Leadville Race Series. So in that post I touched on these points:

1.) There continues to be HUGE amounts of trash left behind on the Leadville Race Courses, and left mostly by the bikers. (PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE)

2.) The lottery this year, was too much a secret for a company that could use more transparency. Not only that, but they've introduced more changes to the lottery which affects those who have supported the race for nearly a decade or longer. (PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE)

3.) The new race insurance policy, and lottery entrance fee, are just more ways that LTF (Life Time Fitness) increases their bottom line. (PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE)

4.) Because of their mission to increase the bottom line, LTF has put runners, some traveling from sea level with little to no ultra experience, in dangerous high altitude situations while ignoring the concerns of more than one volunteer.

5.) The Leadville Race Series has never had to complete a NEPA study in its long history. That changes this year as the USFS is finally looking into doing so. (PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE)
