Chupadera Wilderness Trail Run Set For February 2nd
Meet at the Chupadera Wilderness Trail trailhead on February
2nd, at 9AM, for a group run to the top of Chupadera
Peak and back. This trail is within the Bosque del Apache, and
climbs from 4550' to 6125' feet in about 5 miles. The run takes
between 1:30 and 2:30, depending on your ability.
To get to the trailhead, drive about 6.5 miles south on NM Hwy 1
from San Antonio. Turn right off NM 1 about 1/4 mile south of the
railroad crossing. The turnoff is hard to miss; it's the first dirt
road on the right past the railroad. Pass underneath the railroad
bridge on this dirt road, and drive to the end of the road, about
Shelter Shuffle 5K Set For March 29th
The real planning for the Shelter Shuffle 5K has started, and as a
result, things are changing. Matt and Cathy Perini and event
organizer Camille Scielzi attended the APAS meeting on Tuesday
January 14th, and APAS was excited about the event and
the chance to raise community awareness of their organization and
the work that they do. However, since the planning is starting so
late, SSR asked to delay the event until March 29th.
APAS will be providing most of the volunteers needed on race day,
so start planning to take part in this race. Don't forget that the
$10 race entry fee all goes toward APAS. For the non-runners,
there will be a walking event. For both events, dogs are welcome,
however, they must be leashed.
