35th Annual Santa Fe Run Around 5K/10K

Since 1979 - (that's a long time people)
Santa Fe Run Around, this Saturday May 18th:  It's not a trail, nor are there any climbs or steep descents  but if you're going to get out for one road race during the year this is the one I'd recommend. It starts and finishes on the Plaza and routes up along Alameda and Canyon roads beneath those lovely cottonwood trees and past all of those stately old homes and gardens.

The Run Around is the oldest continuous road race in northern New Mexico, so it carries a lot of its own history and prestige. Besides being a stellar race and an otherwise fine way to spend a Saturday morning in downtown Santa Fe, yours truly is indirectly involved with the race planning and a little more directly involved with the new event website we've put up. Pretty fierce, but that's how we do things up in huhr.

Come on out. Bring your friends. Mom and Dad can walk the 5K and enjoy the morning. Kids are invited to run the 1K afterward, cost is zero dollars. You may just see me and pistol Pete knocking out some stroller miles, be sure to give us a wave and say hello. Race registration for 5K and 10K runners 19-under is just $5 and includes a race-tee, how could a reasonable person turn that down? It can't be done, that would be ridiculous. So, we'll see you there.
