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!

I love the feeling of being taken care of. As a runner, you can really notice when the people running the race care about the runners, and all the events that I have ran with this group are always filled with that feeling .

Amazing event staff, well organized with ample variety of food and drinks at the aid station. Course was well marked and in perfect condition. Everyone was friendly and going by my camp and giving my daughters otter pops was truly a cherry on top!!!!

Silver Moon participants are some of the friendliest I've met, second only to the race director. The mid-loop point where we got to cross paths with each other was my favorite.

People asked me if I ever got bored running around the same loop for hours. Not at Silver Moon. Beautiful vineyards in California under a full moon with a family atmosphere created by the organizer and volunteers. I looked forward to coming back to the aid station at every lap for a variety of foods and moral support from volunteers.

I have done more than 40 different races over the past 8 years. Silver Moon was amazing!!!! I loved the camping. I loved the breakfast and lunches they set for out for us. I loved how present the directors were. Everything about this race was a 10!

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.

This event holds a very special place in my heart. I chose the 6 hour time as I am very new to the much longer distance (anything greater than 14 miles). This is an honor-based system so you got what you put into it. My goal was to complete 10 laps totaling 20 miles. I based this on my average half marathon time but also took into account the fact that I'm battling tendonitis in my ankle and it's a trail run at night. I was able to complete 21 full miles in 5 hours and 48 minutes. This is the most distance I've ever run in one event. Needless to say, that intense feeling of satisfaction as I crossed the finish line for the final time.. that high... overcame me. I would definitely recommend this event with my whole heart. I will definitely run this event again next year. The staff provided so much food and hydration at the camp site it was overwhelming. Everyone was encouraging and so proud to be there. I can't wait to beat my distance next year.
