TIME: 4:00am – 7:00pm

The inaugural Endurance Santa Fe Mountain Race is set for September 1 in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains surrounding the country’s oldest and highest elevation state capital. This is Santa Fe’s premier trail running and ultra running event. IPBINDEX.com identifies the 50KM as the hardest trail race in New Mexico. The 50 mile is tougher still. Endurance Santa Fe is THE test race for you! 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.

Sept 29, 2018: WILDLAND 52  How about 52K  Relay??  52K- 4 Person Relay OR 52K – 3 Person Relay! 6:30 am Located in Jemez Springs , NM  First annual Wildland 52k Ultramarathon (52k ultra and wildland firefighter relay teams) in Jemez Springs, NM! This being the first annual race, we are limiting entry to 20 spots for experienced ultrarunners, and 20 spots for wildland firefighter relay teams. The course will feature approximately 7,500 ft of elevation gain and 6,400 ft of elevation loss.  Much of this is in condensed sections, so there is much runnable terrain as well!

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.

A small show compared to other area tours which provides unique opportunities close to explore and experience! Stop off in Riconada for a homebrew beer flight tasting at the Blue Heron! Aug 31, Sept 1-2, 2018

Pojoaque River Art Tour features studios in communities of Pojoaque, Jacona, Jaconita and El Rancho. County Road 84 ends at San Ildefonso Pueblo where you’ll find traditional Pueblo potters studios welcoming visitors. The El Rancho Community Center will provide refreshments and local artists displaying their work for the weekend too. We suggest combining this September Northern New Mexico Studio tour with a visit to Bandelier National Monument- make a full day of it! Sept 15-16, 2018

High Road Artisans Studio Tours of Northern New Mexico follows the High Road to Taos! This Northern New Mexico Studio Art Tour is scheduled for the last two weekends in September. An excellent time for Fall Foliage viewing as the leaves on mountains have turned yellow and temperatures are still balmy. 60+ studios beginning in Chimayó all the way to Vadito, on NM 518 open their doors to visitors! Art is not all you’ll find as a bounty of traditional fall foods are offered along the way!

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 Lightning 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 29,30, 2018
