Silver Falls Marathon
02 November 2019
The silver falls marathon is difficult and challenging, but quite possibly the most scenic course around! This motha packs a punch and features significant elevation gain with mud, rocks, a creek crossing and lots of hills! Course begins in the south falls day use area and features a total of 6 aid stations. The marathon follows the same beautiful course as the half and at the 2nd aid station (mile 6) splits off and begins its own 13+ mile journey in the back country trails of silver falls state park. Huge fir trees, several bridge crossings, lung busting hills, a creek water crossing (mile 9), amazing single track trails and tons of wildlife greet runners in this remote area! After joining back with the half course at aid station #5 (mile 19.1) the marathon now enjoys the beautiful and scenic canyon trail with several waterfalls along the way back to the finish at south falls day use area.
Silver falls state park has ample parking spaces available. Paved parking is located right near the start/finish area. All parking and day use fees are covered for participants and volunteers for race day only! Please proceed to the main fee booth and volunteers will hand parking passes to be displayed on your vehicle dash, and direct you to the event area. Signs will be posted.
