Please note: The race start will be in Jemez Springs, NM and run through the beautiful historic ruins of the Jemez Historic site; from there it continues up the side of Church Canyon via private property.  Part of our agreement is to not disclose the trail until race day, and only to runners and EMS personnel, as it is being made available to us with special permission.  Thus, the course map provided will not show the majority of the first leg.  We ask that you be respectful of their wishes and not share the trail information with others and refrain from traveling the trail outside of race day.  There is much local and fire history associated with the trail, which makes it so special to this race and we do not want to lose our privileges.  If one is caught on the trail outside of race day, they will be disqualified from the race with no refund and banned from future events.  Thank you for your cooperation ad understanding.
