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.

Arriba! New Mexico Wheeler Peak 22 miler

The route we did yesterday, this will change next year

Deb and I had a great rike (run/hike) yesterday in the Wheeler Peak wilderness area. Approx 22 miles, all incredible wilderness and stayed up above 13,000 feet for a good bit. We ran it in 7:15, while the day before Brian Murray ran a modified version (but slightly longer) in 5:50.
We had a run in with a private property owner that will change this route permanently, I'm thinking Brian's route might work.
Here is Brian's route
Here is the original route The private property section is around mile 4-5.
Here are some photos and videos I took along the way.
