Race Preview: 2019 Buck Mountain Mudslinger Trail Run (Silverton) – 10th Anniversary event!

Saddle up runners! The 2019 Buck Mountain Mudslinger Trail Run in Silverton will be on February 23rd this year. Run Wild Adventures puts on a great race, and there are very few race backdrops that could rival the beauty of the gorgeous Silver Falls State Park.

This race is now in it’s 10th year and it’s a 6.6 mile long single and double track trail race on Buck Mt. Loop and Smith Creek trails. Expect this to be a challenging quad burner with signification elevation and lots of mud and possibly even snow! Check out the course map here and the elevation chart here.

Speaking of snow, there could be snow and ice on the road at this time of year, so carpooling and all-wheel drive vehicles are strongly encouraged.

Stick around for a fun post-race celebration that includes hot coffee, chili, and refreshing Seven Brides Beer. There will also be raffle prizes, music, and awards. There’s even a contest for best dressed cowboy and cowgirl, so come in your best western gear!!

Pets are welcome at this race and camping and lodging at the park are available, so consider making this into a fun weekend! Check out accommodations at Silver Falls State Park here.

This race is limited to 300 participants, so register now while you still can.
