Route information
The 15 mile course has a long, steep climb to Guaje Ridge before descending back to the
start. Note that sections of the trail on the ascent have loose footing.
The 50 kilometer race starts by climbing Guaje Ridge to the ski area and Ski Lodge Aid
Station. After leaving the Ski Lodge Aid Station there is a steep 1,000 foot climb directly
to the top of Pajarito Mountain (10,400’ elevation) and the high point of the race. From
the top of Pajarito Mountain runners take a long descent eventually passing through a
short section of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) land enroute to the bottom of
Los Alamos Canyon. Runners then take the Perimeter Trail around town to the finish
The 50 mile race runs the shares the 50 km course from the start to the Quemazon Aid
Station (mile 25.4). From there, the 50 mile course goes up the Quemazon Trail to
Pipeline Road then descends Pipeline Road and returns to the Perimeter trail. From there
runners take the Perimeter Trail to the Mitchell Trail Aid Station. At the Mitchell Aid
Station runners will ascend the South Mitchell Trail over Guaje Ridge and descend the
steep North Mitchell Trail into Guaje Canyon. Runners then proceed west up Guaje
Canyon to the Pipeline Road Aid Station for a second time. From there runners descend
Pipeline Road to the Perimeter Trail, back through the Mitchell Trail Aid Station and on
to the finish line.
All three races will provide the participants with great views of the town of Los Alamos
and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The 50 kilometer and 50 mile runners will also get
to see the Valles Caldera National Preserve, spectacular views of the Jemez Mountains,
and glimpses of the Sandia Mountains to the south.
