About This Activity

Run the mountain! Here's a unique opportunity to run the trail up and down Excelsior Springs' very own "mountain" -- Siloam Mountain. A chip-timed 5K course (and a 2-mile walk) will begin and end near the cross in Siloam Mountain Park. Runners will enjoy the paved trail through the woods, fast and downhill going out with a turn-around on Lover's Lane at the bottom of the hill, then a challenging climb on the return to the finish line.

This is a chip-time course. The start/finish line is near the cross in Siloam Mountain Park. Most of the out-and-back course is on a paved asphalt trail through the scenic Isley Park Woods on Siloam Mountain.

Due to the steep hill and some steps, the 5K course is not recommended for strollers.


Funds raised from this event will benefit the Excelsior Springs Educational Foundation.
