Taos Ski Valley Up & Over 10k Trail Run
Hosted on Saturday, the Up & Over 10K is notoriously challenging with many runners returning year-after-year to beat their PBs. There are many groups that run together; friends, co-workers, and whole families who want to take on the mountain. The course is a formidable and scenic 2,612’ climb from 9,321′ at the base, topping out at 11,819′. Expect amazing views of Kachina and Wheeler Peaks, followed by a technical descent through high alpine terrain.
USATF New Mexico State Championship
This year, we’re excited to announce The Up & Over 10k Trail Run will serve as the USATF New Mexico State Championship for mountain running! USATF members can enter the competition in 7 different age groups for men and women, and awards will be given to the top 3 finishers in each age group.
New on Sunday this year, is the VerticAL's VertK, a daunting vertical 1K up TAOS’s famed Al’s Run. In winter, Al’s is an intimidating long, steep black diamond ski run directly under Lift 1, carved with seemingly infinite measure of moguls. VerticAL's participants will scramble up from the base to the finish at the top of Al’s – a grueling gain of 1,497’. Due to the demanding terrain, this event will be open to participants 16+ years old.
Take on a two-day challenge with the Up & Over 10k on Saturday and VerticAL's VertK on Sunday. Each race will be timed - with a special prize going to best combined overall male and female.
Event's current local time: 6:03 AM MT
