One race not enough for you? Try two days of exhilarating challenges. First, spend Saturday running the Silver Rush 50 Run, and follow it up on Sunday with the Stages Cycling Silver Rush 50 MTB. Finish both and you’ll earn respect from everyone. Finish both events within the allotted time and you’ll forever be known as a  Silver King or Silver Queen.

The 2022 Silver King & Silver Queen epic challenge will take place beginning with the Silver Rush 50 Run on July 10 and ending with the Stages Cycling Silver Rush 50 MTB on July 11.

Visit the Silver Rush 50 MTB or Silver Rush 50 Run pages for more information.

Racers that finish within the time limits of both of these races will receive a Silver King or Silver Queen award. The male and female with the overall fastest combined times will be crowned the Overall Silver King and Overall Silver Queen.

If you do not attend the award ceremony to receive your award you may have it shipped to through our retail store. Click here to have your award shipped to you.

*Please note that awards will not be shipped until the end of our race series season.

Our races aim to be Zero Waste events. Look for recycle and compost bins at every aid station and start/finish. Please discard any trash in an appropriate container. Intentional littering on the course will be grounds for disqualification. The course—on trails both public and private—travels past many historic sites and through areas of exceptional beauty. Help us keep them pristine.

We will be recycling all plastic, aluminum and cardboard during these races, and all our events. We’ll take care of this at the aid stations. At the start/finish, please ensure you place trash or recyclable materials in the appropriate containers, which will be well marked.

Congratulations Leadville Silver Rush Kings and Queens!
