The Reliability Run starts at Wooly Mammoth parking lot

Where in the Wooly is Wooly Mammoth?!

The Reliability Run starts at the Wooly Mammoth RTD lot off of I-70 at Exit 259. The parking lot is on the south side of highway 40.

Collect your pre-registration packet or register here between 8am and 10am. All registration packets will then be available in Central City at the Big T Lot check-in tent.

Maps and routes will be given to you at Wooly Mammoth. This is about a 60 mile run and it ends in Central City.

If you are lucky you’ll get to experience all four seasons on your drive! 😉

*ALSO* We will have a group leave the Big T lot in Central City at 8:15 am and drive to Wooly Mammoth.

MSN – Hot Rod Magazine

Seems even MSN likes what we do, here’s a great article I missed from the 2015 Hot Rod Hill Climb!

And at 8,500 feet above sea level, the weather can be unpredictable in the mountain town, but luckily the overnight deluge gave way to blue bird skies in the a.m. and welcomed an eager bunch of hot rodders, ready to take on the 1,000 foot rise of Leavenworth Mountain.
