Take on the Mountain Duo challenge by running any of the Silverton Alpine distance options, and then climbing to the top of Kendall Mountian in the 12-miler on Sunday!! Look out onto the Alpine Loop from the top of Kendall when you tap the summit. If you want to take on this challenge and and get a discount by registering for both races, select the Mountain Duo registration option on this page.
