Does your spirit drive you to fight for breath in a high-altitude desert? Let's run the Atalaya trail! The trail will bring us to the top of the Atalaya Mountain (9,127 ft) which offers spectacularly stunning vistas of the City of Santa Fe, Jemez Mountains and Sandia Mountains. It's a glorious 3-mile long (one way) single track under the shade of the beautiful ponderosa pine with some 2,000 feet of climbing.

Bring your running gear and walk some stairs in your office building to get ready for this adventure. We (read those seriously interested) will hit the trail on Wednesday afternoon to be backhappy, thirsty and hungryfor the conference dinner at 5 PM. Bear bells will be provided.

The most determined runner will be awarded an amazing running hat provided by Endurance Santa Fe that organizes a series of the toughest mountain races in New Mexico.
