I’m so excited to announce we are planning the SECOND annual Wildland 52k Ultramarathon!
When: September 14, 2019, 6:30am-6:30pm
Where: Jemez Springs, NM
Who: Anyone who has completed a mountain trail ultramarathon. Well, the first 30 to sign up, at least!
Q: When does registration open?
A: March 15, 12:00am
Q: What is the cut-off time?
A: 12 Hours to finish the race. There is a 5 minute allowance if you get a massage on Cerro Pelado. Hahaha Yep. I’m serious.
Q: What is the sports drink?
A: We’re hoping Tailwind again! You are welcome to bring something else for your drop bags, but we won’t be able to offer any sports drink other than the sponsoring provider.
Q: Will there be a shorter race?
A: No, not this year. At least not at this time… Unfortunately, we are limited by the amount of parking at the Start/Finish location at Jemez Falls and cannot accommodate a larger event at this time.
Q: Will there be a relay?
A: We are looking into this; however, if we do, it will be limited to first responders only (Firefighter, EMT or Police; may be combined).
Q: Is the course the same?
A: We are hoping to be able to keep the same course, but may have to change the start due to it being on private property. If it must be changed, it will start and finish in the same location to make it simpler logistically for runners. We will do all we can to keep the same amount of elevation, however; if we have to decide between easier or harder, we will go with “harder”. We should know soon if there is a change.
More details to come soon!
