Promoting Running in Santa Fe Since 1978

36th Big Tesuque Trail Run

Date: through October 3th, 2020
Location: Santa Fe, NM
Type: Virtual Race / Challenge

The 36th Big Tesuque Trail Run is ON!!! well, sort of. To keep socially separated we're allowing anyone to sign up and run it on their own between now and October 3rd. The 12 mile course is as beautiful as ever and this year, because you will be timing yourself, we're allowing everyone to stop their watches at the top, take in the views for as long as you like, then start your watch before you run back down. All times will be self reported on the runsignup website and we know your times from before, so we'll be on the lookout for any suspiciously good PRs. Race categories for awards will be the same (0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, >70) for both women and men and we'll have first overall awards for female and male. Because people will be running it on different days, we've going to order the shirts after everyone has entered, so they will arrive later, but for once, you'll get the right shirt size! We'll have some raffle prizes but we haven't finished the list of what those are yet.

As always, the race starts and ends on the Aspen Vista Trail at the gate. The top is the same t-post we've run around for the past 10+ years. We ask you to stay safe, wear a mask, wear gloves if you intend to fall, and mostly, enjoy the run! In the event that coronavirus is gone by October 3rd and/or social distancing restrictions are lifted, anyone interested can meet at the trailhead and we'll all run together at 9am.

Proceeds will go to support WINGS and all the kids that this great program supports. You're encouraged to go directly to their website to check out what they do and to donate if you feel so inspired!

Email Peter Fant (petergfant@gmail.com) if you have any questions.

Thanks! Stay Safe! and Keep Running!
