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.

2013 MTNRNR schedule

New schedule is up....all dates are TBD until I have heard confirmation back from the RD's. Some runs will go and there will possibly be some new ones.

I have added the Battleship Rock Marathon to the schedule.
This is a sweet, but tough all single track trail run starting and finishing at my house, with post run get together afterwards. Lots of trail, tons of climb, starting and finishing at 8200', dropping down to 6500' in the first 5 miles, but then turning around and climbing right back up. The majority of the run will be on the East Fork Trail #137 in the Jemez Mountains, to get the last 10K in, I'll take you up onto Cat Mesa for a loop back to the house. I have to see where I can fit this in the schedule and around the other races Deb and I are entered in.

The Arriba! New Mexico run in June up on Wheeler, will be a new course. Last year Deb and I were almost shot when following the original route and ended up on private property...we found a way to get around this land on a new and exiting route. You can see this new route on my MapMyRun page if you click on the link under maps on the right of the main web page.

Hope all is doing well with their training and we all have a fun year!
