THE SILVERBACK
Saturday, May 21st 11:00am
Get ready for possibly the most difficult multi-sport event in the world. The Silverback is our signature race involving the completion of three continuous and sequential disciplines: whitewater kayaking, mountain biking and trail running. The kayaking leg will begin at the Tuxedo Hydro-station on the Green River and end at the first bridge on Green River Cove Road; totaling roughly 8 miles and will include the Class V Narrows. Next the competitors will transition to the mountain biking leg that takes place in the rugged Green River Game Lands over roughly 8 miles. Upon completion of the bike leg, racers will then have to run the 8 mile course. This is an individual event only requiring class V kayaking skills combined with technical cross country mountain biking skills and have the endurance to finish with a challenging trail run. This event is entirely self-support.
