    My first 100-miler and it was absolutely awesome! Flat course, marked very well, some shadows from the trees, beautiful nature. Plenty of snacks, hot dinner and breakfast. And the most important – super friendly and supportive race crew. Medal is just awesome and the buckle is woooow. Absolutely loved it and will definitely do it again. Highly recommended!

    I love running in the orchards with the full moon and all the lights! The music, snacks, and bathroom accommodations were perfect at the finish line. And our camping section was also great for our necessities. We will be back for our run party again next year!

    I love this race because being a 2.5 mile lap course, all you need to do is focus on running! The lap course allows you to challenge yourself safely compared to some other ultra trail races in the mountains and backwoods. Running during sunset is pretty, but when the full moon came it, running was simply tranquil.

    The aid station was fully stocked and loaded with a wide variety of food and drinks.

    The race directors, staff, and volunteers were amazing! Always motivating and there to support the runners. They truly made this race phenomenal!

    I highly recommend this race for all runners. It is just an amazing experience to run in a beautiful place under the full moon!

    Many people do not like looped courses, especially when they are smaller loops, but the environment that these RD’s create is one of a kind. The sense of love and community within a foot race has never been more felt than in this race. Lots of support, food choices, new friends, set-up areas and options to move up or down in distance if needed. I highly recommend this race to anyone.

    The aid station was more than anyone can ever ask for. Fully stocked with awesome people taking care of every possible need any runner might have. It was my first 24 hour race. I think is the perfect platform for any runner to test his/her endurance. It is always a beautiful experience running from the sunset under the full moon into the sunrise with your friends and family cheering you every 2 miles. I loved having my tent on the side of the course where I could rest and freshen up as I needed. My favorite part was the attention from the race directors and all the volunteers. Aside from all the “normal” race foods, they provided warm breakfast and lunch. I love the medal! My performance was not the best since I was nursing some health issues but because of the race format, I was able to get my 42miles while taking care of myself as to not get injured. I took long naps during the night and long breaks during the day. It was perfect because you can do as little or as much as you want and no timeline pressure.

    I highly recommend this race to anyone that enjoys camping, nature, stars and full moons. In the end of the race, you feel like you know everyone on the course.

    Having always wondered how far or fast I could run if I didn’t have to worry about not finishing was the primary motivation for signing up. The volunteers are incredible, the course is serene during the day and full of life at night. A PD officer played the rocky theme for 30 minutes, a volunteer joined me for a loop when I was feeling beat down. Every two miles I got to see my family and it was incredible. I would love to go back. The towel is unique and a really good size.

    This is the second Silver Moon race and my second time running the 24 hour category. I brought my family the first year and they felt so much love from the race directors and their awesome volunteers that they begged me to run it again this year. This is a great race for many reasons. Obviously it’s family friendly and so easy to cheer and support your runner since they will pass you every two miles. It’s a great coarse, with scenery that never seems to get boring, despite seeing it every lap. The photographer becomes a good friend that you look forward to seeing each loop and produces amazing and memorable photos at no additional charge. The buffet of food to choose from at the aid station is ever changing and plentiful! The support is genuine and the experience is much more intimate. The finishers medal and swag are worth the final finish if everything I mentioned was not already enough. This is a race you should definitely consider as part of your training or as a goal race. Either way you will not be disappointed!

    I ran the 6 hr relay with family and friends. We had camp set up and enjoyed every minute with music and camp stories as we cheered on other runners and teammates. The event organizers had a huge spread of refueling treats. I am definitely returning for 2020!!

    This event holds a very special place in my heart. I chose the 6 hour time as I am very new to the much longer distance (anything greater than 14 miles). This is an honor-based system so you got what you put into it. My goal was to complete 10 laps totaling 20 miles. I based this on my average half marathon time but also took into account the fact that I’m battling tendonitis in my ankle and it’s a trail run at night. I was able to complete 21 full miles in 5 hours and 48 minutes. This is the most distance I’ve ever run in one event. Needless to say, that intense feeling of satisfaction as I crossed the finish line for the final time.. that high… overcame me. I would definitely recommend this event with my whole heart. I will definitely run this event again next year. The staff provided so much food and hydration at the camp site it was overwhelming. Everyone was encouraging and so proud to be there. I can’t wait to beat my distance next year.

    So, after 26 Spartan races, a Ragnar Trail race, a few half-marathons and the L.A. Marathon, I moved onto Ironman. I have done two 70.3’s and am training for my first full. I never thought I would go back to trail running again. Until Silver Moon. I won a free race at my running clubs annual banquet and chose to do the 24-hour Silver Moon. My thinking was that I could get a good long training run in, sleep, and get another long training run in. Never did I think I would fall in love with this race. Everything about it was great. The venue was great. The organizers were great. The volunteers were great. The vibe was great. I will be back in 2020, and every year henceforth.

    If you hate running under the sun the 6 and 12 hours of this race are what you’re looking for. If you are looking to push your limits and see how far you can go on a close and safe environment then any time or distance of this race will help you out with that. I did the 12 hours as a first time ultra runner and ended up with 51 miles, not bad for being my first. I was prepared with my nutrition so I can’t say much about their aid station but many runners seemed to be enjoying it. The medal is a must add to your swag, I mean who doesn’t love the moon? I sure do and this medal is huge just like it. I did the race in 2018 and didn’t get a finishers shirt so I wasn’t excited about that cause I got a towel and even tho it’s pretty cool you can’t show it off as you do a shirt 😅. I can’t wait to go back and push my limits.
