Running To Leadville: Life, Love, Loss and a 100 Mile Ultra Marathon Through The Colorado Rockies / Brian Burk


Running to Leadville is a story about a runner who finds himself and his love of running, only to lose nearly everything. The story captures the connection between life, love, loss and the battles within your soul. The central character, who perhaps as a result of an absent father just doesn't fit in. While trying to find his place in the world he uncovers his love of long-distance running and exposes a hidden talent. During a long training run, his life, and his future takes a detour as a result of a violent and terrible twist of fate. Running to Leadville is also a story about the rigors of the ultra-endurance world. Set on the stage of one of America's toughest Ultra-Marathons, the Leadville Trail 100, this race is affectionately known as "the race across the sky" introduces the reader to extreme adventure running. Set within the high-altitude terrain of the Colorado Rockies the Leadville 100 is not for the weak. The race covers elevations ranging from 9,200 to 12,600 feet above sea-level. The race and the mountains it covers demands respect. It is one thing to run 100-miles, it’s another to stay awake for over 24-hours and it’s exponentially harder to do all of this while above 10,000 feet. This story promises to take the readers to the highest peak of Hope Pass and the lowest of lows as doubting yourself emotionally and your ability to physically take the very next step. Mostly, Running to Leadville is a story about running the race of your life, while finding the truest form of you.
