5 Time Finishers Requirement
For any runner who has finished Mt Taylor 50k five or more times there is a requirement that they must volunteer or do trail work at the race before they can run again. Trail work opportunities happen July through September. Possible volunteer jobs include event set up, packet pick up and trail marking Any out of state runners who have run 5 times can contact us doing local trail work or volunteering.
Come experience the many aspects of beautiful Mt. Taylor. Though located only 90 minutes west of Albuquerque near Grants, New Mexico, the trails there are rarely visited by runners. Join us in the Navajo tradition of waking up before dawn and running east to greet the sunrise from the La Mosca Lookout. See the views of the volcanic plugs to the north, the forested trails of the continental divide trail, trails through open high mountain meadows, and the 360 degree view from the summit of Mt. Taylor. This not-for-profit 50K is a scenic yet challenging mountain ultra created by runners, for runners. Once you see the course, you'll wonder why you've never been here before. Register and come see this hidden part of New Mexico for yourself!
Entry includes a technical t-shirt to all those who register by September 1, bracelet to all female finishers, finisher medal to all who complete the 50K, post race cookout, well stocked aid stations and a well marked course. $95 until August 1, then $110.
Register by August 8 for a guarenteed shirt size.
