These popular runs take place on dirt roads and trails in the spectacular Valles Caldera National Preserve. The runs have aid stations every 2-3 miles with water, sports drinks, and other refreshments. All entrants receive a t-shirt. Awards will be given to top three finishers in each 10-year age group in the 10k and half-marathon. All marathon finishers will receive a finishers award. The races start at the Banco Bonita Staging Area, Valles Caldera National Preserve.
The entry fee is $40 for the 10k, $50 for the half marathon, and $60 for the full marathon. After August 27, the entry fee for all races increases by $10. All entry fees are non-refundable and we do not offer transfer of entry to another year or transfer of bib to another runner. Sorry.
We CANNOT accept day of race entries!
The 10k and half marathon courses will be essentially the same as last year. The full marathon will return to the one loop course with the out and back segment. Course maps are posted on the website.
