WELCOME RUNNERS

The Silver Moon Race is about challenging yourself, taking your endurance ability, and miles to new heights. Perfect for those who want to elevate from half marathons to marathons to ultramarathons.

You'll run in beautiful scenic locations in a 10K or for 6, 12, 24-hours, or 100-mile race on an awesome lap course. Go solo or in a 4-person team relay with your favorite running friends.

The race is always timed on a weekend closest to the full moon. Starting right before sunset and running through the night under the vibrant glow of the full moon and stars into the sunrise the next day.

We have two amazing locations in central California, the original Silver Moon Race on a farm along the Kings River in Reedley and our newest one at the CASS Winery in Paso Robles, both locations providing a memorable running experience that is guaranteed to become a favorite!

Silver Moon was my first ultra, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. This event was well organized, staffed by friendly and supportive people, and the participants reflected a great diversity in age and body type. I look forward to next year's race!

I went into the day nervous and not knowing if I was ready or what I could accomplish but the beautiful location, wonderful volunteers and low key / low stress atmosphere of the race made it easy to just focus on having a good time and keep moving. I surpassed most of my goals and learned so much about what I can do to improve next time.

The Silver Moon Race is a must for any runner! The organizers and volunteers are so supportive to whatever your personal goals are! The aid station is THE BEST. You can park right off the course which is even better to access your own gear and see family. And personally being able to check off each completed loop on the leaderboard is SO satisfying! Such an amazing event!
