The Ninth Annual Jemez Mountain Trails Races are scheduled for Saturday, May 24. Registration for the half marathon (13.1 mile) option is now open. These races fill up quickly so register soon at http://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=24422.
The Jemez Mountain Trail Races are a wonderful community event that takes full advantage of the beautiful mountain trail running network around town, up Pajarito Mountain and through the Valles Caldera. Last year, more than 600 runners participated.
Through the registration fees and generous national and local sponsors, the race gave back more than $15,000 to local charitable and non-profit organizations as well as supported two scholarships for Los Alamos High School graduating seniors.
