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.

Watermelon Run is on

This from Andrea Feucht:

You are receiving this email because you have either contacted me THIS YEAR about the Watermelon Run, or you have expressed interest before. It is not a huge list, so pass on the love to your friends, and if you can RSVP to me that is MUCH APPRECIATED.

4/2/2011: Watermelon Run in the Sandia Foothills and Sandia Crest – 20.x miles of roly-poly, UP, roly-downy, DOWN, and then flat.

Here is the map, to get yourselves acquainted:

LOCATION: The farthest possible Pino-side parking lot of the loop-de-loop of the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area. On the map it’s the little START arrow. If I remember correctly there are bathrooms there. Bring a couple bucks in case they make you pay to park.

Start time is SEVEN AM: 7 a.m. Arrive at least by 6:45. I want to have most of you outta here shortly after noon before it is hot for too long.

NO AID PROMISED: bring your water, snackies, and sunscreen. I will try to have both beverages and snacks at the finish, but if my brain leaks out of my ears during my Organic Chem midterm I cannot be held responsible for your hunger. J Besides, fasting is good for you.
