Shirts will also be available in limited supply (sizes will vary) so get there early!$20 for individual registration, $30 for couples. Sign up online or in person at the event. The course of the race will follow the path of UNM North Golf Course and make cuts through UNM North Campus (maps will be provided day of the race). We will also be having 1K walk for children under the age of 12 for free and scholarship opportunity for some families (Please call UNM Healthy & Fit Children's Clinic for more details). Water stations will be available at check-in and the halfway point of the race but it is encouraged to also bring your own source of refreshment. Parking will be available at M LOT, the large parking area north of UNM Hospital. Please do not park at the golf course as those spots are reserved for individuals playing golf. Waivers will be available during check-in on the day of the event. It is important that every individual signs a waver before participating in the event. An ID is not required for participating in the event but may be helpful during check-in for registration purposes. Please dress in layers as the weather may be “chilly”.
