_ The 2023 Foothills 10 Miles Run:
Join us for an incredible 10-mile trail race that promises an unforgettable experience. Prepare to conquer challenging single track sections while immersing yourself in breathtaking scenery, crisp mountain air, and the awe-inspiring skies of Albuquerque.
The Foothills 10 Mile Run showcases the rugged Sandia Mountains, the stunning foothills high desert landscape, and the City of Albuquerque nestled in the Rio Grande Valley. Starting at approximately 6,500 feet, the ever-changing terrain of the foothills trails takes you through the Elena Gallegos Open Space and Cibola National Forest, ensuring an exhilarating journey with each mile.
Get into the groove with a live DJ who will keep the energy high before and after the race. New for 2023, our best in class technical race shirts now come with long sleeves to match the crisp fall morning temperatures. There will be three course preview runs led by Altra to familiarize runners with the course. Additionally, we've expanded the heated area at the staging point and we now offer two parking areas instead of one.
After you cross the finish line, savor the taste of New Mexico breakfast burritos and local coffee specially prepared for our finishers.
The Foothills 10 Mile Run awards prize money to the top five finishers in both male and female categories ($1000; $700; 500; $400 and $350). We also have first place age group prize money for both males and females 15-19; 20- 24; 25- 29; 30- 34; 35- 39; 40- 44; 45- 49; 50- 54; 55- 59; 60- 64; 65- 69; 70+ ($75). There will be medals for the top 3 finishers in each age group.
Our race is capped at 400 participants and we fully anticipate the Foothills 10 Mile Run will sell out quickly. Once the race is sold out, we will start a waitlist.
