Boom Days 5K Trail Run and Mountain Bike 5K Races – Results

The Boom Days Trail Run and Mountain Bike 5K Races were a huge success for the Colorado Mountain College Running Club. 37 runners and 17 bikers took on the hilly 5K course on the CMC Leadville campus. Runners and bikers from Leadville and  the rest of the country woke up early to tackle the challenging ups and speedy downs in this exciting race. Temperatures were in the low 40s at the start of the race. Rain from the night before made the trails pleasantly soft.
