    Thank you to Robert Hardcastle for leading the Thursday walk in the past. Starting September 30, 2021, I will be your guide. Some members have expressed interest in exploring other city trails. We can discuss this. See you Thursday!

  • Tortugas Mountain Wake-up Hike

    Sunset Parking Lot

    A morning beat-the-heat hike! Come meet us at Tortugas Mountain (aka "A Mountain", because it has a big "A" on it). It's an urban mountain with many, many hiking trails to explore. Imagine the refreshing moment of overviewing the city with cool morning breeze in the shade at the mountain top. It's a nice and quick workout to begin a day, and we will hike mostly in the shade (because we are early enough:)

    Time to move this because of the flooding and boredom. We'll meet for the foreseeable future at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park which is one mile north of Sagecrest. Meet at the picnic tables. Still starts at 6 pm. The walk will join the north - south trail where we used to end on the north. Walk to the flooded area and return.

  • Juarez International Marathon, 42.2 km, 30 km, 21.1 km, Relay, Wheelchair

    This race is tentatively set for October 17. Packet pickup will be October 16 at the convention center at 1320 Abraham Lincoln. The actual races will be on October 17. The 2019 race started and finished by the X at the Plaza de la Mexicanidad. The race website is at https://www.maratondejuarez.com/#main. They do have an official notice. The race will depend upon the health and sports authorities letting the race happen this year. Stay tuned. I will update as more info comes available. Keep training!

    This is one of the bigger marathons in Mexico and one of the most competitive. There will be Raramuri (Tarumahara) runners. Be sure to greet them Kweera = hello and Waypamah = run strong.

    You will also see Kenyan athletes. Here are some key words in Swahili for greeting them: Jambo = hello. Karibu = welcome. Haraka haraka = Run strong.
    The race is a lot of fun. There were zombies dancing to strobe lights in the underpass by the cathedral in 2018. Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper have been by the Arco de Triompho. There was a mariachi aid station. You can run in costume. Batman raced in 2019.

    One very nice addition in 2019 was the 30 km for those who want to push beyond the half marathon but aren't yet ready for the jump from half to full.

    Ps. The entry fees are much lower than marathons here in the States.

    Of course, this race will help us stay ready for more Mexican races like Don Rayo, Caballo Blanco, and Ultramaraton de los Can~ones.
