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.

Caballo Mountain Run this Saturday

For those who are not trail marking with Tom and are planning on getting in a good run, this Saturday is the Caballo Run. I have mapped it out as 28.5 miles, which means it's more like 29 miles. Here's the link to the map with elevation, etc.

We will meet at the Los Alamos Aquatic Center at 7am and I am planning on dropping water at a convenient place, maybe where the Pipeline trail comes down and intersects the Perimeter trail (about 22.5 miles). So you'll need to carry water to get you that far.

This is a difficult run with over 5000' of elevation gain and loss with the 10, 400' climb up and back down Caballo Mountain. I'm guessing it will take me and Deb 7.5-8 hours to complete this.

Hope you can join us!
