The Jemez Mountains Trail Runs takes place in and around Los Alamos in the scenic Jemez Mountains of Northern New Mexico. Three distances are offered; 50 mile, 50 kilometer, and a half marathon. The registration fee is $80 for the 50 mile, $65 for the 50 kilometer, and $45 for the half marathon. Race registration includes free entry to the pre-race pasta dinner, a tech t-shirt, numerous aid stations, access to the post race party, and other goodies. The top age group finishers in the half marathon and all finishers in the 50 mile and 50 kilometer races will receive hand made original Jemez Pueblo pottery as an award.
The Jemez Mountains Trail Runs has gained a reputation as a very difficult course. The course is on technical trails with a substantial amount of elevation change. The 50k and 50 mile events include extremely steep climbs and descents on very technical terrain. On the course, runners will experience high altitude (from 7,000 to over 10,000 feet above sea level), fallen trees, and other obstacles. The 2013 50k and 50 mile courses will be the same as the 2012 Las Conchas Fire course. Runners are encouraged to consider their comfort level on this type of terrain before registering.
