Cedro Peak – 2021 in consideration…

(UPDATE, January 2021)

Thanks again to everyone who participated in our first Virtual race!  It was definitely a learning experience, but we adjusted as much as possible with the COVID pandemic.

Just a quick note to keep you posted…

Currently, the Forest Service is not considering permits until April (at the earliest).  As such, we are looking at options to hold the race in the fall of 2021.  As things progress, we’ll keep everyone posted via this page and our Facebook page.  Unfortunately, we don’t have an email distribution list, so please check in periodically to the aforementioned sites.  Stay Healthy! 

Background:
Normally 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.
