Race & Course History
“An earlier rendering of the dash up the mountain during Silverton’s boom days — in August 1908 to be precise — predates the modern day version of the race. On Monday, August 24, 1908, miner Neil McQuieg raced to the top of 13,066-foot Kendall Mountain and back to town on a bet that he could do it in less than an hour and a half. He lost the bet, but only by a minute and 42 seconds.” Read the full story…
