September Santa Fe New Mexico Travel Special Events
Ultra Santa Fe Trail Run: Sep 10, 2016
TIME: 4:00am – 7:00pm
The inaugural New Balance Ultra Santa Fe is set for September 10 in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains surrounding the country’s oldest and highest elevation state capital. Racers will compete on trails through the Santa Fe National Forest, Santa Fe County, City of Santa Fe Open Space and Nambe Pueblo as they complete different legs of the competition including the 50-mile, 50-kilometer, 13-mile, and a final uphill mile run.
INTERESTED? Varying levels of elevation and terrain challenge racers through the 50-mile course, navigating 14,000 feet of climbing and 28,000 feet of changing elevation. At the race’s highest point, it will take runners to higher than 12,000 feet above sea level. All races start and finish at Ski Santa Fe, which sits at an elevation of 10,330 feet and is located 15 miles from the city’s historic downtown.
WANT TO WATCH THIS FANTASTIC DISPLAY OF ATHLETICISM??
While racers are battling the terrain, spectators can set up shop at Ski Santa Fe to enjoy live music, a beer garden, chairlift rides as well as a variety of cuisine from La Casa Lodge food court. Ski Santa Fe will be the premier venue to watch The Uphill Mile, as it will bring runners directly underneath the chairlift as they make their way to the finish line.

Pecos Arts Annual Studio Tour features 20 or so artists and is probably the smallest studio tour! But you know the ol adage “Good things come in small packages!”. The size makes a more intimate atmosphere allowing visitors to mingle more with artists! Works like paintings, ceramics, tin, jewelry, wearable art and more will be on display. Since you’re so close, take time to visit the Pecos National Historical Site (home to the archeological remains of the Pecos Pueblo). FYI: By reservation only, on Sundays the site offers a tour of Forked Lightening Ranch, former home of movie star Greet Garson and her husband, cattle rancher Buddy Fogelson. One of John Gaw Meem’s first architectural home designs. Another idea might be to ride up to the Pecos Wilderness area as the scenery is beautiful with extensive hiking trails and good fishing! You’ll find a Fish Hatchery as well as Dalton Canyon (you may recognize the name- associated with Billy the Kid gang). Sept 24,25, 2016
