Race Day Details - Oct 3, 2015

The final race preparations are in various states of completion for this year's 31st annual event. Weather looks first-rate for this Saturday and the smoke from this week's forest service prescribed burns has dissipated.

Registration has been strong once again for this weekend's event, we hope to exceed last year's total of 151 finishers. As always, there will be race day registration from 8-845am. All of you last minute fence-stradlers should make the drive up to Aspen Vista and join the race. Striders Club Members will pay the full registration fee on Saturday morning (so register today!). As a result of several requests, there will be a walking/hiking division this year. The start time for this group will be moved back to 8am. Expect race morning to be busy and if there are any lingering questions of what to expect, please refer to our helpful primer on this topic:
 - What to Prepare for on Race Day - Big Tesuque Trail Run.

Seems entirely appropriate to announce that we have two runners traveling from New Zealand to make this year's event. They will not be disappointed. We will also have representation from four other states, with runners from; Seattle WA, Window Rock AZ, Midland TX, Fort Collins CO; and over a dozen cities and towns here in New Mexico, including; Clovis, Socorro, Roswell, Las Cruces, Taos, Montezuma, El Rito, as well as several nearby locales (Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Edgewood, Sandia Park, Placitas, Los Alamos, Las Vegas, Guadalupita, Espanola, Tesuque Pueblo). Will see you all this Saturday morning.
