This year's Corrida wound through the rolling golf course at Marty Sanchez before heading out and along a path paralleling Caja del Rio Rd. At the turn-around runners retraced their route to the finish. In prior years there was hardpack and ice to deal with, particularly black ice in the tree shadows of the golf greens and frustrating stretches of ankle deep post-holing on the Caja del Rio section. All of this make for a fantastic cross country race but were elements that this year's racers did not have to deal with. They did have to deal with burritos from the Santa Fe Baking Company and coffee provided by Java Joe's. More of an advantage than a deterrent actually but I digress.

A special thanks goes out to race directors Therese Trujillo and Meredith Schoenfeld and their crew of volunteers; to Mike Walsh at Paseo Pottery who provided the overall and age-group awards, and SF Screen Printers who did the printing on the race shirts we ran out of; to Whole Foods and Java Joe's for providing food and coffee. And lastly to the 106 runners that showed up to run on a beautiful January morning. Very well done to all involved and all who raced.
