Description


ABOUT THE RACE:

Welcome to the Las Montanas FunRacer! A family-friendly event that even the dog can participate. In fact, we encourage you to bring your four-legged friends.  The Las Montanas FunRacer is a scenic trail race nestled in the Cibola National Forest in Placitas, just north of Albuquerque.  This event has something for everyone.  There are three distances to choose from: 1 Mile, 5K, and 10K.  There are events for the kids, and you can even bring your dog along for the 1 Mile or 5K.  If you're looking to record your finish time, choose from the 5K Timed or 10K Timed Run.  The course is a well-maintained wide forest road with breathtaking views of the Sandia Mountains and unobstructed views of the westside.  It is welcoming for the new runner, while offering enough difficulty for the elite.  End your race with water and snacks, and be sure to visit our vendors.
