2853Other Silverton Running Events
- May 30, 2012Greetings Hardrockers,
Having Dale's permission, I'm sending out some information on other running
events coming up this summer in Silverton. Over the past few years I have
assisted Rodger Wrublik in organizing the Blue Ribbon 5/10K on July 4th,
Kendall Mountain Run, the resurrection of the Silverton Alpine Marathon and
his dream race, the Silverton 1000 Multiday. Rodger asked me to take over
the direction of the Kendall Mountain Run and Silverton Alpine Marathon
this past summer to relieve some of his workload which I accepted. To
promote these two events along with a new run on the same 1 mile loop
around the Kendall Mountain Recreation Area used in the Silverton 1000
event, I've launched a webpage www.silvertonalpinerunning.com with
information about these events and Silverton running in general. The site
currently has updated information on the three events we will be organizing
in Silverton this summer, but I hope to include other general information
about running in Silverton. Let me know if you have any feedback on what
you would like to see there!
I'd like to invite you to take a look at these events if you are looking to
spend more time in Silverton this summer or experience some of the other
runs that take place there. All of these runs have a very family / small
town type feel, and I hope we'll see you out at one of them this summer.
Here is our schedule:
Silverton 6/12/24 Hour - June 30, 2012 (Kendall Mountain Recreation
Inaugural event on a 1 mile loop with 250 feet of gain each loop
Kendall Mountain Run & Marathon - July 21,
38th Annual run to the top of Kendall Mountain and back to town. Kendall
Mountain Marathon ascends twice!
Silverton Alpine Marathon & 50K - August 25, 2012 (Alpine Loop Jeep
Classic alpine loop to the top of California Pass (12,960 ft) past historic
mining towns of Howardsville, Eureka, Animas Forks, & Gladstone.
On a more personal note, if anyone is up in Silverton at all between June
and September, reach out to me if you are looking for a running partner! I
will be living in Silverton most of the summer and would enjoy the company!
I will be posting photos and info on everything having to do with
Silverton and running on our Facebook page too:
(still holding out hope of being pulled off the waitlist!)
