Forever Young Run Race Description

Come run the Forever Young Run & Walk in Placitas this April 7th at 9:00am  

Sponsored by the Albuquerque Road Runners

The first 150 registrants will receive a long-sleeve shirt!

 

This race is a celebration in memory of Albuquerque Roadrunner member Charlie Young, an avid runner, cyclist and outdoorsman, who was killed in a cycling accident in Colorado in August 2004. Since Charlie always ran without a shirt even in the dead of winter, shirtless (not topless) participants are given a two buck refund at the finish line. 

Charlie lived in Placitas, so the race is held on a dirt loop course in Placitas with rolling hills in a beautiful pinon/juniper area. Choose a 10K run or a 3 mile run/walk. 

Awards will be presented to top 3 finishers in each category of each event. Refreshments, including breakfast burritos, will be served!

A portion of proceeds benefits the Placitas Community Library.

Directions:  Take I-25 north from Albuquerque to Exit 242. Go East on Hwy 165 for 2.1 miles. The start is approximately 1/2 mile East of Homestead Village shopping mall (which is on the North side of the road). Start area is on the South side of the road. OK to park on the shoulder.

My favorite Abq race

This race can't be beat. It is a challenging course with great organization, friendly volunteers, fair pricing, and excellent post-race food. The course is completely on hard-packed dirt with varying elecation, which makes it much more interesting than your run of the mill road course.
