A terrific morning on Saturday. Glad to have had so many people out, a marvelous group of volunteers from the Striders and Santa Fe Rotary, and the energetic group from Girls on the Run. A special thanks goes out to our dedicated event sponsors and the City of Santa Fe, as well as the race beneficiary - the Santa Fe chapter of Girls on the Run.

Race and age-group results had been posted to the Striders website this weekend - albeit somewhat hard to locate without a link on the Home page. We've re-posted them below:

  5K Overall - 328 finishers from 8 states
  5K by Age Group

  10K Overall - 72 finishers from 5 states and the District of Columbia
  10K by Age Group

Race Weekend is Here

A beautiful weekend lays ahead for the 36th annual Santa Fe Run Around! Saturday's forecast calls for clear skies and morning temps in the 40s-50s. Couldn't be a nicer morning for a run around downtown Santa Fe with several hundred friends.

We will have race-day registration and packet pickup setup from 700am-745am on the north side of the Plaza. We expect a fairly large turnout compared with recent years, so plan to give yourself enough time to find parking and visit the registration table. Last minute runners, walkers, kids 1K are encouraged to come out and enjoy the day with the rest of us. Don't overlook pre-paying your parking through 1000am to fend off any unwanted 'awards'.

We have confirmed with Mariachi Conquistador to have music on the Plaza Bandstand from 830am-930am. Like you, we know that everything is better with Mariachi. We also have forty-odd raffle prizes from our generous sponsors to give out after the awards ceremony, including:  A one hour flight lesson from New Mexico Sport Aviation, gift certificates to Santa Fe Bar & Grill, a pass to Fitness Bootcamp Santa Fe, gift certificates to The Running Hub, and more.

Come out Saturday, bring a friend, knock out a few miles and enjoy a summer morning on the Plaza.
