We are working on raffle prizes from our sponsors. Shirts will be available day of the race between 7:30 - 8:30 a.m.

The Santa Fe Striders will provide burritos from Joe’s Dining, and coffee from Java Joe’s and there will be much rejoicing!


None of us claims to be immune from the Coronavirus or any of its variants, and we have no idea what the Governor's orders will be on race day, October 2, 2021. With that said, we will fully comply with any orders our Governor thinks are necessary for the common good and to keep us all safe. However, we’re betting that being outside and running up the trail will keep us socially distanced and safe!

Neither the Santa Fe Striders, nor anyone associated with the race can be responsible for your safety or health as is stated on the waiver just in case you were wondering.


Aspen Vista, Hyde Park Rd

The Big T race is the same 12-mile up and back run up Aspen Vista Trail that starts at 10,000 and takes us up to 12,003 feet at the radio towers. The starting point is at the trail head, 14 miles up Hyde Park Road, just before you get to the Ski Basin and there are guaranteed spectacular views when you break out of the trees before you get to the top.
