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.

Three Peaks

Today ran three peaks....just me and the dogs. Where are all the runners that are missing out on these fantastic runs?
The run started out sunny and warm, but ended up in the middle of some nasty storms. Marley and Gibbs, my dogs and I made it to just below the Baldy Summit when I saw a lightening strike up near the top, so we turned around. I was getting really cold anyway and it was windy up there. So I'm guessing I ran a mile less than the 20 mile total in 5:27. It was hard, but a great workout.

As I was running down the paved road in the beginning, Mike Donovan drove up and said he got a late start but would try to catch me. An injury and deteriorating weather caused him to bail at the ski slope on the top of the road.

Up next is the Silverton Silver next Saturday....will anyone show? I can't even get the RD to respond to my emails!

Silverton Silver is the same weekend as Leadville 100 and Pike's Peak...IF I could get up to Silverton, I would rather be there ;^)

Im having the same trouble with the RD, was going to go up and do the 50k, but can't make it to packet pickup and have been trying to get confirmation that it's okay for me to get stuff morning of. Oh well, gonna go watch the US Pro Cycling instead and run somewhere else for free.
