My favorite race last year, (and I did A LOT of races, many on very beautiful routes) took place at Silver Falls State Park, and it was 100% due to the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever experienced. I’ve done a lot of trail races in lots of different locations, but the waterfalls I got to experience and the 360 degree stunning views of this park topped them all.
With that being said, I’d recommend you register today for the 2019 Silver Falls Trail Challenge and get ready to lace up for either the Quarter Marathon or the Half Marathon, which will both be amazing.
This Bivouac Racing event will be on April 20th and starts and ends at the South Falls Day-Use Area of Silver Falls State Park. The Half Marathon will begin at 8:00AM and the Quarter Marathon will be at 8:30AM. If you choose to do the 6.55 Mile Quarter Marathon, you’ll be traveling one loop around the Trail of 10 Falls. If you opt for the Half Marathon, you’ll get to experience it all twice and see all the stuff you missed the first time around the loop.
You’ll get to run around and beneath the gorgeous waterfalls and if you’ve never done that before, it’s something you’ve got to experience for yourself at least once. Or maybe more. It never gets old. When you’re being challenged on the trails, it’s the views that keep you going, so if you’re up to the challenge, clear your plans for April 20th and do it!!
