Quicksilver 50M/50K/25K May 10


I would like all the “Cardio Elite” out there (AKA the Ultra List) to know that the Quicksilver 50M/50K/25K will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2008.  The races are run on scenic, hilly trails and fire roads, with 5,440 feet of climb in the 50K and 8,530 feet of climb in the 50 Mile.  You will run through peaceful forests and along ridges with spectacular views of the Santa Clara Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains.  All single track trails are cleared of brush.  Although the course is very challenging, the friendly aid stations and beautiful scenery (and no time cut-offs in the

50K!) make Quicksilver an excellent choice for a first trail ultramarathon.  It is also an excellent training run for Western States.  The outstanding post-race barbecue is a fitting reward after you’ve met the challenge.
