First Annual Grindstone Trail Run

When:  Saturday July 26, 2014  7:30 AM
Where:  Start/Finish at Wingfield Park, Ruidoso

Communications volunteers are needed for this event. 

This new event replaces the Ski Run Road Challenge.

Participants will proceed along semi-wilderness trails that were prepared by the local Eco-servants group for general use as well as events such as this.  There are two distances, 4 and 8.5 miles.  The shorter run has minimal altitude change and stays closer to the reservoir.  The longer distance climbs over several hundred feet before descending again to the reservoir.  (See the map.)

Participants can sign up here:
