About Westcliffe and The Wet Mountain Valley: Westcliffe is the smallest town that HPRS operates in with a population of just 600 residents. The town itself is 30 minutes north of the Start/Finish line of the SdC Ultras. Westcliffe was started in 1881 when the local railroad created a stop there, and was named after a town in England known as Westcliff-on-Sea. It’s nearest neighboring town in Silver Cliff. Silver Cliff also has a population of about 600, was named by the miners who settled there in the 1870s after the Silver Cliff Mine.

The Wet Mountain Valley describes the area in between the Wet Mountains to the west and the Sangre de Cristo’s to the east. The area rests just under 8,000 in elevation.
