Join us for the 1st annual Cloudcroft Ultra 53k and 9.5 mile trail race in the beautiful Sacramento Mountains in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.  Both races are an out an back on the Rim Trail (T105).   The Rim Trail was the first U.S. Forest Service Trail in New Mexico to be designated as a National Recreation Trail. It is a combination of old Indian paths, railroad grades, homestead trails and logging routes linked together by newer section built in the 1960’s and beyond. The majority of the trail passes through shaded stands of fir, pine and quaking aspen. At various points along the route there are spectacular views of the Tularosa Basin over 4,000’ below.  The 53k will have a nice surprise for you in the lollipop loop at the turn around point - incredible views, and some nice changes in elevation!!  

Entry includes a technical t-shirt, finisher awards to all who complete the 53K, post race cookout, well stocked aid stations and a well marked course.
