The Southern New Mexico Trail Alliance brings you the 9th annual running of the Sierra Vista Trail Runs. This event serves as the primary fundraiser for the Southern New Mexico Trail Alliance- 501 (c)(3).

The 2020 event will be the same as in 2019 with 2 days of trail running!. There will be distances of 100k, 100k relays, 50k, Half-marathon, 10k, 5k, and 1 mile kid’s fun run.
We keep registration low to make trail racing financially accessible for more people. As always, race registration requires the donation of an old pair of shoes. Bring the shoes to packet pick up or race day. Donated shoes will be offered to the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope, http://www.mvcommunityofhope.org/.

50k and 100k registration includes a finishers award. Runners in all distances get a pair of race socks. Sizes cannot be guaranteed after February 3, 2020. Extras will be ordered but sizes and quantities will be limited and available on a first come first serve basis. There will be awards for top three men and women in all distances. Post race food will be provided.
