We look forward to seeing you April 27, 2019!
Trail report: I’ve finally seen all the trails and they are in great shape especially since the Forest Service did some work and re-routes on the following trails: Mahogany, Cedro Single Track and a small portion of Mighty Mule. There are downed tree’s on Delbert’s (50K course) but you can get around them. I did report them to the Forest Service.
I’ll be sending out more detailed information via UltraSignUp very soon, but you can get info on the webpage from the UltraSignUp site as well.
Held in the Cibola National Forest, Cedro Peak Trail Runs are a fully supported April race featuring three race distances: 1/2 marathon, Full Marathon and 50K. Put together by volunteers, the trail races 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.
The Sandia Search Dog Team volunteered to be human flags along the Cedro Peak Trail Event course with their canine companions! This group is an all volunteer organization that provides primarily wilderness search and rescue services for lost people within New Mexico and surrounding States. When these volunteers are done flagging, they will come to the Finish Line and conduct demonstrations. So try your best to “hide” from there four legged members! Cedro Peak Trail Event is also donating to their caus
