  • Running: Jemez Trail Runs results--see photo slideshow

    Nearly 500 people completed the three Jemez Mountain Trail Run races Saturday.

    Los Alamos hosted the event Saturday. Racers had a choice between 50-mile, 50-kilometer and half-marathon varieties.

    Event director Bill Geist said things went off Saturday with few hitches.

    "I thought it went really well," Geist said. "All but one of the surveys we got back said they liked it and the people who ran the aid stations really liked it because they didn't have to worry about keeping water cups filled."

    This year's race was cupless, meaning racers had to keep their own water with them rather than grab water cups at the stations.
