UPDATED 08/09/15: The Forest Service has given us the “green light” for running the Silent Trails Memorial Race on Saturday, October 10, 2015 as it has been run in the past. No significant changes in the start/finish area, the course, or associated festivities need to be made. (Thank you Forest Service personnel!)
Now’s the time to increase your mileage and practice running over uneven ground so that you can make a good showing at the race. Registration will open on about September 1, 2015. Registration will be on-line only via Active.com. Please check back in early September for further updates and registration information. Stay well and have a good remainder of your summer.
UPDATED 04/07/15: The Forest Service is re-opening the Upper Tie City Camp Ground in summer, 2015. I have been advised by Forest Service personnel, in no uncertain terms, that that re-opening means that the Silent Trails Memorial Race can not include the segment of dirt road where the race traditionally starts/finishes. Nor will the race course be allowed to include any segment of road/trail through the camp ground area. Alternatives are being considered. Please stay tuned.
UPDATED 10/12/14: The 2014 edition of the Silent Trails Memorial Race is now in the books. Thanks to all the competitors who made the event a success. We hope that each of you is able to join us again in October, 2015.
Congratulations to the champions:
Overall Men’s Winner: Jason Delaney in 1:06:57 (mere seconds off his 2006 course record of 1:06:13.)
Overall Women’s Winner: Abi Bever in 1:27:36

We wish to thank the families of the eight young men we remember and honor when we compete at Silent Trails for their ongoing support and encouragement. We wish to thank all the volunteers who worked to make the race efficient and enjoyable. Finally, we wish to again thank our sponsors: HoneyWagon Sanitation Pumping and CPA Group of Laramie, LLC. Their generosity made our race possible.
Stay well. Keep on running.
