Join us this autumn as we race through the unique and beautiful Chihuahuan Desert near the quirky, artsy, hot-spring town of Truth or Consequences!  Imagine crossing the Rio Grande on foot to run a combination of jeep roads and single track trails which meander up and down scenic arroyos that feature unique flora, passing by old mining sites, all while winding through the foothills of the Caballo Mountains.

Races include a 50k, half marathon and a 5 miler. Our races begin and end at the riverside at Rotary Park where you can enjoy live music, vendors, a beer garden, and delicious food provided by local restaurants. After celebrating your race, enjoy an after-run soak in one of our famous healing hot springs
