Many people have asked what the policy is for any spots that open for
this years Hardrock next week. If you are a wait listed runner please read on.
If you are a friend of a wait listed runner, be they sitting at home or in
Silverton please help us get the word out.
On 7/4 I will post the most current entrants list and wait list. This
will be posted at Kendall Mountain Rec Center and Charlie Thorn's house in
When we open runner check in on Wednesday at noon, wait listed runners
MUST check in with us to let us know they are in Silverton and available to
run. They can do this any time between Wednesday at 12:00 and Thursday at 11
When we close checkk in at 11 a.m. on Thursday, any available spots will
be offered to the wait listed runner who a. has checked in with us and b. is
the highest on the wait list. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT TIME A RUNNER CHECKS IN
WITH US AS LONG AS THEY DO SO BEFORE 11 AM ON THURSDAY. As a final option,
entered runners must check in by 5:45 on Friday. If for some reason, something
happens on Thursday or a runner has change of heart we will go to the next
person on the wait list who is standing in the gym on Friday morning. WE WILL
CONTINUE TO OFFER SPOTS TO RUNNERS UNTIL WE REACH OUR BUREAU OF LAND
MANAGMENT/U.S. FOREST SERVICE PERMIT LIMIT OF 140 RUNNERS. We will not

aid stations. I hope this helps clarify the process. If you have any questions
be sure to let me know.
See you in Silverton soon!
