White Mesa 50k Run – 4th annual
White Mesa Bike Trails – San Ysidro, NM
Saturday, 11/9/13 8:00 am
It’s an unsupported, unmarked, free, fat ass style ultramarathon trail fun run at the White Mesa bike trails near San Ysidro. It is about a 45 minute drive from ABQ.
White Mesa contains some of the most unusual and spectacular scenery in New Mexico. The course is absolutely crazy.
Course: 4 loops for the 50k. There’s no 64k this year. Every trail intersection has a detailed map and location marker so it is very easy to navigate. Loops 1 and 3 are clockwise, loops 2 and 4 are counter clockwise. The map below shows the sequence of markers (as we found out in 2010, the mileage is not correct on the map). Just follow the trail and you will be ok. Each loop, you will record your time on a clip board. You will have access to your car at the end of each loop. You can also do a shorter combination of loops for a marathon, half marathon, or other distance.
There may be a cheap and poorly constructed award for the fastest time.
