Angel Fire Trail Race

Angel Fire Endurance Run is an inaugrural event beginning and ending at The Lodge at Angel Fire Resort at Angel Fire, New Mexico and it will take place on June 30, 2012.  There will be a 50K, 50 Mile and 100 mile and it looks to be a challenging event with a good mix of single track trail, forest road and a short paved section.  I've read that this will be New Mexico's first 100 mile trail race?  And did I mention it's put on by Chisholm Deupree who has a great track record with putting on fun events.  He's also RD for 24 The Hard Way and Double Dirty Dozen.  The race will start at almost 9,000 feet and will climb up to over 10,000 at it's highest point.  Since I have never ran a race at high elevation I have NO idea what to expect.  It will probably be a slow race for me. 

The Lodge at Angel Fire Resort is offering special rates for race participants and is opening their awesome looking zipline the day after the race!  Check out the YouTube video and the picture.  This will be a must..a reward for completing the 50k!  ; ) 

Yes...that tiny dot at the top is the person on the zipline.  weeeeee!


  1. Looks like a great event...have never heard of this one.

  2. zip linning is too scary for me. hell i don't even like being on a ski lift!

  3. OMG, this looks incredible. I remember you mentioning online you were doing this, but you didn't say ziplining. I LOVE ziplining - I did it in Hawaii a few years back. Racing and ziplining - now if only I handled altitude better. Boo. :-( You will have SO MUCH FUN!

  4. Looks like an awesome event! Hope your training is going well. That zip line will not see me!
