2013 New Mexico Trail Running Calendar

Break out the cross skis for a few more
months of winter events
Found time to roll-forward the area trail race calendar (2015 calendar here) from last year. Several events on the winter slate have already come and gone including this weekend's Ski Classic up in Chama. 

Dates are still filling in. At least two races have fallen off the calendar: the Cochiti MTB 100 appears to be on an indefinite hold after the fire season of 2011 wiped out that entire area of backcountry; and the race organizers for the Sandia Peak Challenge have wound down that event.

A couple additions to the NM MTB Endurance Series have been added in Chama and Tijeras (though I don't have them up yet). I've added the February screening of the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival. Will the annual screening of the Banff Film Festival be back in Santa Fe this March? Still waiting on word for that since their old sponsor Sangre de Cristo Mountain Works is no longer around. Last year it was partially screened as a fundraiser for the Santa Fe Conservation Trust so I imagine it will be back.

Another additions is the Mt. Taylor 50K which may have had the most positive word of mouth for a new(ish) event last year. I'm not active in ultras but a solid race is a solid race, so I'll have that up on the calendar shortly.

As always, if you have a race or event to suggest, send over an email, or list it below in the comments.
