Americans Jacquie Mannhard and JP Giblin took the spoils at the Leadville 100 with two exhilarating performances at the race in Colorado, USA. The pair dominated the women’s and men’s races respectively – each winning by a comfortable distance.

Mannhard completed the 100-mile out and back course in a time of 21:24:55, finishing almost two hours ahead of her nearest rival. Giblin, runner-up in 2022, crossed the line first overall in a time of 17:07:25, over 40 minutes ahead of Luke Paulson in second.

Both victors were some way off the course record times set by Matt Carpenter (2005, 15:42:59) and Ann Trason (1994, 18:06:24).


Magnificent Mannhard

The Boulder-based ultra runner, who is at home in the Colorado mountains having won the Kessel Run Ultra (60KM) in November, 2022, produced a strong performance to set a time of 21:24:55 – the slowest women’s time since 2010. Despite that fact, she was the class of the field taking the win by one hour, 51 minutes and 56 seconds.

Second over the line was fellow American Lucie Haines. Haines had enjoyed a pair of victories in Colorado Spings in May and June winning the Valkyrie Trail Race (50K) and Ring the Springs (100K). But at Leadville she was unable to keep apace with Mannhard as she finished in a time of 23:16:51.

Canada’s Madeline Wighardt denied the Americans a clean sweep on the women’s and men’s podium by finishing third in a time of 23:32:57. The 22-year-old finished second in the Quebec Mega Trail (QC) 110K race in 2022 as she starts he fledgling career.

Colleen Noonan was next over the line – another who has enjoyed 2023 success in the state. The American won the North Fork 50 Mile/50K at Buffalo Creak and Chase the Moon 12-hour Solo. Noonan had to settle for bronze at Leadville, however, as she finished over two hours behind Mannhard in a time of 23:33:57. Carrie Stafford (23:48:50) was fifth over the line just under the 24-hour mark.


Glorious Giblin

Another Colorado-native took the victory in the men’s race as Giblin topped the podium. The 29-year-old, who finished 18th at Western States in June as well as second at Bandera 100K in January, finished in a time of 17:07:25.

He was followed over the line by Luke Paulson (17:47:55). The 31-year-old, who won the Yamacraw 50K in Kentucky in May, was 40 minutes and 30 seconds off the pace.

Scott Tarer was third over the line in a time of 17:54:12, just six minutes, 17 second further back. The 42-year-old won the Crown King Scramble 50K in May and finished 15th at Western States in June. He is a previous winner of the Javelina Jundred, the Hennepin Hundred and the Vermont 100.

Great Britain’s Ry Webb finished fourth in a time of 18:38:13 – an hour and a half behind the race winner. Webb has +800 rating on the UTMB Index won the 2021 Lakes in a Day 50 miler, Patrick Cabe (19:34:54) rounded off the top five.
