This site is an informational portal for informal trail runs in the mountains of New Mexico, Southern Colorado, and West (far far west) Texas.

The runs are informal, small-group activities intended to encourage camaraderie rather than competition. There is no sponsoring organization, just a loose-knit group of interested trail runners who enjoy running trails across the landscape of New Mexico (and adjacent parts of Colorado and Texas).

The purpose of this website is to provide coordination and information for those interested in joining the runs.

NOTE: Please contact the Race Directors beforehand of your plans to attend, or you may show up at the start alone.

I would assume that the course goes from Stone Lions to Frijoles Canyon by Middle Alamo. Going all the way to Lower Alamo next to the Rio Grande adds 7.7 miles.
The course without the out-and-back between Capulin Canyon and Boundary Peak is, according to measurements by John Cappis, 22.7 miles.
Boundary Peak is a 2.8 mile detour each way.
In case of thunder storms late in the run, consider adding a mile by going to Bandelier Headquarters (with tap water) and up the bottom of Frijoles Canyon and not on the south rim, which is very open to bad weather.
