List of Previous Champions

So just who are the folks that have shown they can both climb with light-footed ease then descend with abandon? Well we wanted to know too, and have begun amassing a list of past champions with the help of saved newspaper clippings and old Mile Marker Newsletters.

Oliver Trujillo of Pojoaque (1987) and Erica Larson Baron of Los Alamos (2002) have the speediest round trips documented so far. 

See the list in progress here.

2012 - Big Tesuque Trail Run

The date is set for this year's Big T, in its twenty-eighth year and still rolling. Saturday Oct. 6th is the morning to mark on your calendar. The esteemed Peter Fant will be directing the race once again, his sixteenth in a row I believe. The race is amassing enough history that we felt we should document it a bit better hence the new race website. Check back as we populate past years' results and stories from races past.

The race is held annually on the first Saturday in October. You can sense that it's coming around when the morning temperatures begin to dip - the first signs of Fall - and that's just what's been happening these last few days.

Registration for this year's race is $25, $22 for Striders' members before race day. Register online at, or download a registration form to mail in or drop off at The Running Hub. The race once again benefits WINGS of America youth running programs.
