Race Information

Team Competition: 

 New this year we've added a team competition to the half marathon. We'll add up the finish times from each team's three members, and the fastest combined time will win a special team prize. We will have categories for men's, women's and mixed teams. Simply pick a team name (keep it PG13 please), and enter it on your registration forms or tell us at the race check in. 


Entry Fees: 

- 10K:  $30  ($35 after Sept. 15)

​- Half Marathon:  $45  ($55 after Sept. 15)

- Kids Race:  Free, and kids can sign up the morning of the race.

UPDATE 10/12/16 - Hello potential Quicksilver Trail Challenge runners. Race day is almost here. Thanks to your overwhelming support of our race, we find ourselves just about out of this year’s swag (the lunch bag and mug). If you are registered runner number 121 or higher (check the current entrants lists), we will offer you the following deal as compensation - $10 off the 10K price or $15 off the Half Marathon price, in addition to your choice of swag from other Quicksilver Running Club events including pint glasses, tech tee shirts, Buffs, and hats. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. Hope to see you there!

Start Times: 

- 10K: 8:15 am

- Half Marathon: 8:00 am

- Kids 1 Mile Race: 8:30 am

Kids' registration on race day only.

Check In Information: 

All Runners MUST check-in on race day. Bib numbers and goodie bags may be picked up between 6:45 and 7:45am on race day at the check in table located at the Mockingbird Parking Lot.​  You can look up directions to the race start.


The parking lot at Mockingbird can fill early on race day. THERE IS NO PARKING ON THE STREET ADJACENT TO THE MOCKINGBIRD PARKING LOT. Once the lot is full, cars will be directed to park on residential streets about 1/4 mile from the start area. It is about a 5-minute walk to the starting area from the residential parking area, so allow plenty of time in case you don’t get into the lot.


  • Awards will be given to the top three finishers for each gender and age group.

  • There will be a special award for the winners of the Team Competition.  

  • All finishers will receive a special finisher's award and awesome swag.

  • There will be medals for all participants in the kids race.
