5 mi and 10-mile runs in the Valles Caldera National Preserve under the full moon!
The fun run is any distance you want to run and will be timed but is not competitive.
The runs are out and back on dirt roads. Start will be at the main staging area, just inside the gate. The route will go from the main staging area to the Headquarters then turn north. Markers will be set at various intervals to mark turn around locations. Aid stations will be available at 2.5 mi and 5 mi, which will serve as the turn around locations for the 5-mi and 10-mi runs.
The course will be marked with glow sticks hung from wire markers. These will be placed every hundred feet or so. We expect the moon to be bright! Runners that want to carry a flashlight, please use one with a red filter so as not to disrupt night vision! (Red cellophane and a rubber band works).
Awards will be given to the first 5-mi and 10-mi male and female runners. All other participants are eligible for random awards. Expect some interesting gimmies!
Entry includes a t-shirt.
