'17 Race Calendar

2017 New Mexico Trail Running and 
Outdoors Calendar


January is here and the fifth edition of our trail/outdoors calendar has arrived. Several **new events** on the schedule, with one or two established races fallen off. Nearly all calendar listings are trail or off-road events. We've added a few other backcountry related events (beer festivals, outdoor film series), and regional classics like the Iron Horse Classic. 

Events are primarily based in New Mexico and southern Colorado, some are regional. A few select events make the list for general awesomeness. If you know of an area trail event we don't have listed, add it in the comments or send an email to  [highdesertdirt_at_gmail.com]

A reminder to support the organizations and event sponsors that bring fun and hi-fives to our weekends. Lot of solid people and fine work being done here.

  1. The NM Endurance Series links have been fixed. Didn't know I had all four of them jacked up like that. Those races will jack you up so I guess it's only fitting.

  2. Ultra Santa Fe is September 10, 2016. It is 4 trail races starting and finishing at Ski Santa Fe. We will have a 50 mile, 50 km, 13 mile and an uphill mile. Checkout ultrasantafe.com or find us on Facebook.

  3. Appreciate the race details Peter. Nice to see someone has been working on a local run of this type. The page will be updated and the event added this evening.

  4. 2018 race date for Endurance Santa Fe Mountain Races (formerly Ultra Santa Fe new name same great races) is set for Saturday of Labor Day weekend 9/1/2018.
    AND look for details on the Four Peaks Phat Ass trail run set for October 29, 2017 (this year, just a few short weeks away).
    Look on www.Facebook.com/endurancesantafe for details.
    The general course description is Start and Finish at the St John's parking lot, run down the arroyo to Old Santa Fe Trail and over to the Sun Mountain trailhead. Run up Sun Mtn, down the back side to the saddle with Moon mtn. Charge up to the top of Moon, 2 peaks done. Back down to the Sta John's trail in the arroyo and up to the meadow at the top. From here head up the south ridge of Atalaya to the top. # peaks done. Get going north to Picacho Peak, 4 peaks. Then down through the Talaya Hill section of Dale Ball back to St John's parking. it is about 12 miles and a bit over 3,000 feet of climbing. peter.olson.runs@gmail.com for more details.
