2nd Annual 100 miler
A straight 100 mile race which will be run on the same 1 mile loop as all of the other races and will be even more of a challenge as we will only allow runners 40 hours to complete this challenge. The 100 Miler will have a special start time of 7am on September 5th.
Do you have what it takes?
24, 48 and 72 Hour Run
The 6th Annual Silverton Multi-Day Challenge includes tons of fun for any adventurous soul! The 72 hour race will start on September 4th at 9am, the 48 hour on September 5th at 9am, and the 24 hour on September 6th at 9am. All of these events will end on September 7th at 9am and then will have an awards ceremony/bbq to follow at 10am. All participants will receive a goody bag that includes a technical shirt, hat, and other goodies and donated items, if any.
Participants will set up camp near the Kendall Mountain Ski lodge at 9318 feet elevation and wear a bib tag around their waist. All runners must cross the timing mat at the base of Kendall Mountain, climb 250 vertical feet around a one mile loop as many times as possible in their allotted time. Participants will endure the elements of the San Juan Mountains around the clock as they fight sleep deprivation and possible heat, rain, lightning and snow. Runners can camp near the big tent where runners will cross the timing mat. There is a very nominal camping/parking fee of $2 per night that is included in your registration fee and goes to the town of Silverton.
6 Day Run
The Silverton 6 Day Run is part of the Silverton Multi-Day Challenge and will be held on the same 1 mile loop as the 100 mile, 24hr, 48hr & 72 hour runs. The 6 day race will start on September 1st at 9am and will conclude on September 7th at 9am. The event will be chip timed and each loop will have 250 feet of climb and descent.
All 6 day runners will be given a specified area for sleeping in the heating tent - you will have access to a cot, a sleeping bag and the area will be yours for the entire race.
All 72hr, 48hr, and 24hr runners will have the option of bringing your own tent to use (must be pitched in the gravel next to the main aid station) or you may rent a tent from us - a small 7x7 tent will cost $50 and a larger 9x7 tent will cost $75.
All runners will have access to chairs and tables set up throughout the aid station tent.
In addition, some electric blankets and sleeping bags may be available for use on a first come first use basis. If possible, additional heating tents will be set up for the non-6 day runners (as in years past).
Pacers and other information
NO PACERS/GUESTS ARE ALLOWED ON THE COURSE AT ANY TIME. PLEASE DO NOT EVEN ASK. THANK YOU.
ADDITIONALLY - ALL RUNNERS MUST GO THE SPECIFIED LOOP DIRECTION AT ALL TIMES UNLESS FINISHING AN UNFINISHED LOOP STARTED BEFORE A DIRECTION CHANGE - THIS IS MAKE SURE THAT NO ONE GETS AN ADVANTAGE OVER ANY OTHER RUNNER.
Finally and most importantly - Any rule differences shown on www.silverton1000.com or any other page will not be followed as only the ones shown on this page are the official rules. The website www.silverton1000.com is in the process of being shutdown/transformed as the event will no longer include the 1000 mile race in 2015 and beyond. In addition the Facebook page is being transitioned as well and may show some differences.... Again... The rules on this registration page are the only official rules that must be followed. If you have a question please ask. Thank you.
