Cedro Peak – May 1, 2022

(Update–May 1, 2022)

Please give a warm welcome to Valerie & Jason Denton, Kim Linder, and Patti Parker who will now take on the wonderful and fun we call Cedro Peak Trail Run!!

Happy trails!

Background: held in the Cibola National Forest, and put together by volunteers, the trail race routes range from non-technical to very rocky but are friendly enough to be a good starter race for those new to ultra-running and challenging enough for seasoned ultra-runners.

The Cedro Peak area is a labyrinth of trails and double tracks minutes from Albuquerque and tucked in the small community of Tijeras.  The start and finish line is at Oak Flat’s Picnic Ground.All courses take runners through a dense forest of ponderosa pine, juniper and pinon.  Primarily rolling single track, there are several steep, but short climbs, and a few short sections of double track and dirt roads.  Many sections are rocky, mixed with fast, non-technical runs.


(Update–April 25, 2022) Thanks so much to all the volunteers and runners who made Cedro Peak Trail Event a success this year! The winds died down a bit, and temps held for the day! Results are available at Ultra Sign Up, and the link to the pictures is on Facebook and on the left of this page! Happy trails!
