Description:

The GBP Trail Series will help keep you outdoors and active during the winter months while exposing you to some of the most beautiful (and runnable) trails in New Mexico. Races are held every third Saturday for the months of December through February with a post series social/celebration after the February race. Here, we award the top female and male finishers of the series. There are two distance divisions, short and long, which means even if you are a hiker, you can join the fun and have plenty of time to complete the short course.

We are including a noncompetitive virtual option this year as well if you still want to get out but not in the crowds. The virtual option will still require you to run/hike the course at the preserve, just on your own and completing the series will earn you a finishers award. There will also be a competitive Doggie Division for the virtual option only.

One of the greatest benefits of participating in this event (other than keeping yourself fit) is that your entry fee is essentially a donation to Commonweal Conservancy who has protected and continues to steward the over 45 miles of trails and 10,000 acres of land in the Galisteo Basin Preserve that we all enjoy. That is right, 100% of the profits go to Commonweal Conservancy and we have raised $9,604.83 in the past 2 years.
