Jemez Mountain Trail Run 50 km Course Flyover

About a month ago I created the 50 mile course flyover for New Mexico’s trail running adventure – the Jemez Mountain Trail Run (takes place late May near Los Alamos).

We now have a new addition to this flyover family – the 50 km course (based on the April 2011 race site data).

A couple stats of interest:

  • ~ 7800 feet of gain
  • Altitude ranges from 7000 – 10,500 feet

Let’s play!

(If you can’t see the video, click here.)

I have special interest in this one as I will be enjoying my first Jemez experience on this course! Woohoo! (Yes, a little excited. 🙂 )

Be active – Feel the buzz!

    Are you running the Jemez this year? I DNF’d last year and was planning to go again but work interfered. I made the mistake of hammering the first big climb and tearing down it. By the time I got midway through Valles Caldera I was cooked. The climb out of the Caldera was brutal and I dropped at the lift ~32 miles in.

    Each race is a lesson. Hopefully people running might read this brief comment and learn something as well! Gosh I love this ultra/trail stuff!

    Hey Mark – Yes sir, I am running (likely too strong a word) the 50 km with a friend who will be going after his first 50 km finish. It will be our first Jemez so I am a bit nervous and excited for the experience.

    Great insight on holding back in the early going.

    I completely agree…great sport!

    Good luck in your next adventure.
