CANCELLED FOR 2020
We learned today, April 16, that the State Parks is cancelling all events through June, 2020. This means we are cancelling this year's Silver Falls Challenge. We will be back next year and hope to see you then. Til then, be healthy, be safe.
Run behind the falls!!! Silver Falls Challenge 3.5 mile* and 7.5 mile* trail run, plus a 1k Fun Run.
(*Though we measure the course, these are close approximates, it's tough to measure those steps!)
Registration is back open! Both races will remain open until they reach 250 runners. Registration is $20 for the 7.5 miles, $15 for the 3.5 miles. T-shirts can be purchase for $15. Registration closes on May 31 or when the limits are met. There will be no race day registration.
The Silverton Runners Club, with the help of the Oregon State Parks, is again hosting this low-key, family friendly, challenging course run on the trails of Oregon's most beautiful state park, the Silver Falls Trail Challenge. Online registration closes Sunday, May 31. There will be no race day registration. We are capping registration at 250 total runners.
All proceeds from entry fees and donations will go directly to the Silverton Running Club's support of Silverton and Mt. Angel high schools' and middle schools' track and cross country programs, scholarships for kids to attend running camps and other local exercise and fitness activities. We have set up a donation tab where you can make a donation to the Silverton Runners Club.
Saturday, June 6 is also State Parks Day, an annual event that waives parking fees at all Oregon state parks including Silver Falls. The park is thrilled to host this year’s challenge as their official State Parks Day event. Start/Finish is at Shelter D, in the Day Use Area of the South Falls Parking Lot.
