The Run Around is the oldest 5K/10K race in northern New Mexico, this much is known. It's also the unofficial kick-off to the New Mexico summer running and racing season. Lesser known perhaps, is that the race benefits the Santa Fe Chapter of Girls on the Run, generating over $17,000 in the last four years for the energetic young women that come out to run on race day.
Alice tells us that the program has 85 nearly 100 young women from five area schools preparing for this year's race. Can't wait to see them out there, eyes lighting up as they dash toward the finishing chute.
