Announcement from Race Director Jeff Frost


Good evening.

After much deliberation, and in consultation with multiple public safety agencies, we are re-locating the finish of your event to Durango Mountain Resort. The driving factor in this decision is your safety. The forecast is calling for snow and cold temperatures over the passes and in Silverton.

Your start times remain the same.

Durango Mountain Resort is excited to host all of the Iron Horse riders – many thanks to them for accommodating the change.

Return Transportation for all those who have purchased the option – BOTH TRAIN AND BUS – will be be provided from DMR back to Buckley Park (start location).

Bikes will be returned as planned to Buckley Park and available for pick-up between 3 pm and 7 pm.

As an important note – US 550 will not be closed – it will be open to vehicular traffic.

This was not an easy decision – and are as disappointed as you are in not finishing in Silverton. We apologize for any inconvenience.

See you in the morning.

Jeffery Frost
Executive Director
