Hardrock 100

Hardrock Medical Symposium

Join us for the 2nd annual Hardrock Medical Symposium, a full day of professional medical education held Thursday, the day before the run's start. For 2019, we have put together another great event with national level speakers and great content for aid station medical volunteers as well other professionals interested in race & endurance medicine.

Additionally, we have partnered with the American Academy of Emergency Medicine to accredit the event for 7 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. CME credit is available to all attendees, regardless of medical specialty. This is in addition to CE credits for EMS professionals, as was offered last year.


Discounted registration though end of May.

Silverton Snow Report - April 2019

Photo Credit: Uncommonly Normal Family

For Californians, March brought about 90 inches of much wished for snow to Silverton. The last part of March was relatively warm so the usual mud season has set in.
Red Mountain Pass was closed for nearly three weeks while CDOT cleared multiple slides. Most of them were shot. The Ouray snow bridge was nearly filled with snow at the Riverside slides. Most Natives can only vaguely remember avalanches decades ago like what we've had this year.
Significant snow is predicted next week.
