Announcement November 2, 2013: It is with mixed feelings that Pickled Feet Ultra Running announces that the Silver City Endurance Runs will no longer take place. We feel sad because we loved the Silver City race; it was a special event. We are pumped, however, because it allows us the opportunity to assist another Idaho race director in announcing a very exciting new race in another unique locality…the River of No Return Endurance Runs, to be held June 21, 2014. We’ll be there; please join us! 

Silver City was Idaho’s first real 100k in the spectacular hills surrounding the historic mining town of Silver City, Idaho. On this tremendously diverse and beautiful course, the scenic vistas are unparalleled. Junipers, aspens, wildflowers, evergreens, rock outcroppings, sage, and mine tailings made this run beautiful and unique. A few climbs made the run challenging, composed of 100% dirt surfaces on doubletrack ATV trails and some 4WD truck roads. The race began just outside of Silver City (elev. 6430′); 100k runners traveled from a high at Hayden Peak (8400′) to a low near 5600′. Read up on the history of Silver City.

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for our volunteers, most of whom were from the local running community,  the Canyon County ATV Club (Rick Harris & Jim Maxey), HAM operators & Valley Wide REACT, the volunteer Murphy Reynolds Wilson Fire Department/EMTs , timing by Rich Marion, and all of the super aid station crews for coordinating to make this run possible. Also, much thanks to the BLM and State Dept of Lands for permitting the event, and the private land owners who granted permissions for passage across their properties. Thanks to the runners for signing up and taking on this very challenging but rewarding course. Thank you all.
