Forever Young Run Race Description

Come run the 16th Forever Young Run & Walk in Placitas this October 24th at 9:00am  

Sponsored by the Albuquerque Road Runners

Race fee is $30 for each event. On-line registration ends at midnight on October 22nd.   Registration is non-refundable unless the race is cancelled.

Runners can also register at Heart and Sole during pre-packet pick up (see below). Cash or check only.

Day of race registration is $35 (cash or check only). Day of race registration closes at 8:30 am

The first 200 to pick up their race packets will receive a Forever Young commemorative hoodie.

For your convenience, pre-race packet pick up is scheduled at Albuquerque's Heart and Sole at:

     2817 San Mateo Blvd NE: Friday, October 22, 4-6pm 

     3601 Eubank NE: Saturday, October 23, 3-6pm.

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,  participants are encouraged to run shirtless (not topless) in his memory. 


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 6 mile 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 local non-profit groups.

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.

Get ready for the Forever Young Run

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.
