Jemez Mountain Trail Runs returning

-A A +A
By The Staff

Los Alamos will once again host the Jemez Mountain Trail Runs.
The Jemez Mountain Trail Runs, which is returning for its eighth consecutive year, is set for Saturday starting at the Los Alamos Posse Lodge on North Mesa.
The runs include a 50-mile ultramarathon, a 50-kilometer race and a half-marathon. The courses run from North Mesa toward Pajarito Mountain, to the Valles Caldera and back again.
Little has changed from last year’s race to this year’s race. Race officials said there will be a little more single-track running at the ski hill which shortens the distance that will be run at the Caldera, but beyond that most runners won’t notice a difference.
The 50-mile race will start at 5 a.m., the 50K race at 6 a.m. and the half-marathon at 8 a.m.
One of the features that attracts runners to the event is that several stretches of the runs take place above 10,000 feet in altitude.
Coloradoans were the top finishers in the 2012 50-mile race. Patrick Garcia of Denver and Diana Finkel of South Fork were the top male and female finishes, with Finkel — who was the No. 4 overall finisher, man or woman — holding off Los Alamos’ Erica Baron. Finkel won with a time of 9 hours, 26 minutes, 29 seconds, while Baron clocked in at 9:29:17.
