Hardrock runners: road closure on Red Mountain Pass between Ouray and Silverton
- The Colorado Department of Transportation web site reports that Red Mountain Pass (the only short route between Ouray and Silverton) will be closed completely between 8 pm Thursday, 7/12 and 6 am Friday, 7/13. This means that you had better NOT be planning to stay in Ouray the night before Hardrock, or you'll miss the start!
In addition, they report that there will only be one lane open with alternating traffic and a minimum 20 minute delay between 7 am and 7 pm Monday-Friday, so be sure to figure this into your estimate for how long it will take to get to Silverton for registration. Remember, if you don't register by 11 am on Thursday, your starting slot will be given to someone on the wait list!
