    Silverton is a charming small mountain town. Inexpensive, with great laid-back atmosphere and friendly locals.
    The course is mostly on unpaved SUV road (and you need to share it with the SUVs and ATVs (not a big deal)).
    2019 was a high snow year which in my opinion made the race better: running through the snowy mountains and a little bit on snow. Couple stream crossings, but nothing bad.
    What’s different about this race – it starts at elevation of 9,300′ and goes up to 12,900′. You better be acclimated 🙂
    Did I mention the scenery? Alpine views are amazing. You also run next to historic abandoned mines.
    It’s a smaller production – few dozen runners for the 50k. The “swag” (t-shirt, cup) is something you can use later and the food was good.
