Mountain Duo Challenge
Get your legs (and your lungs!) warmed up for your adventures around the Alpine loop and make the most out of your weekend by running the classic, 42nd annual, Kendall Mountain Run. Double Down by running the Kendall Mountian 12miler Saturday and either the Silverton Alpine Marathon or 50K on Sunday!! Preview the Alpine Loop from the top of Kendall when you tap the summit. Save 15% by registering for both races with the add-on option at checkout.
New 8 Mile Race for 2019
Maybe your legs are a little wobbly from the Kendall Mountain Runs on Saturday, or your lungs are getting used to the altitude. Maybe Sundays are just your day for runs in the single digit mileage range. Whatever the reason, we would love to have you come experience a unique out and back on the Alpine Loop. Head out from Silverton to Howardsville, take it all in, then come back to celebrate and cheer in our other finishers at Memorial Park.
This race is also part of our Mountain Duo Challenge!! Make it a memorable weekend in Silverton by running the historic Kendall Mountain 12 miler on Saturday, and shake out those climbing legs on Sunday in our 8 miler.
