Why Run Spiral Drive?
The Spiral Drive Run celebrates the iconic Tenderfoot "S" Mountain and Spiral Drive that was created through the efforts of volunteers from the City of Salida during the 1920's.
CSU Professor Elmore Petersen when asked about Spiral Drive in 1922 said:
Salida presents an unusual manifestation of the results of actual cooperative effort. One of these days, her ‘Tenderfoot Spiral Drive’ will be nationally famous. It is an automobile boulevard which winds around the cone shaped Tenderfoot Mountain just opposite the city, forming a cork-screw to the top, 600 feet above the streets below. From this summit the view of Salida itself, the Arkansas River Valley, the Sangre de Christo and Collegiate ranges of mountains, is too much for words. And over it all spread the snowy wings (literally of snow) of The Angel of Shavano such as may be seen nowhere else in all the world. But what I started to say was that this road is entirely the product of cooperative effort and not one dollar has been spent for labor, excepting what money was donated to the cause….The next time anyone in your town crabs around that there is nothing the local chamber of commerce can do, I respectfully refer you to Salida, that has struck a stride worthy of emulation
We agree and hope you do as well. Please join the Chaffee County Running Club on June 9th, 2018 to celebrate the "cooperative effort" of Spiral Drive.
