Trail Maintenance Day Saturday October 18th

This coming Saturday (October 18) is the next Single Track Maintenance Day. We plan to meet at 9 AM at the trailhead (there will be a sign on the gate). Bring your tools (shovels, rakes, etc) and be prepared to put in a few hours of work. The recent rains have been hard on the trail and there are a few long-standing problems that need work. If there is any sections that you feel needs special attention, please let Robert know. See you there!

Hash House Harriers Meet October 30th

The Socorro Hash House Harriers will meet on Thursday, October 30th, for our first Halloween Hash (costumes required)! Meet at the Socorro Springs Brewing Company at 6:00PM for a 6:15PM start. This will be a night hash, so bring a flashlight! Also, Matt and Christian may both be receiving their hash names!

World Run Day is November 9th

World Run Day, a running fundraiser that benefits charities worldwide, is November 9th. Coincidentally, that corresponds with the last race in the Fall Running Series, and so we've linked the two events.

We've chosen the Animal Protective Association of Socorro to be our charity for the event, and we will be accepting voluntary donations for them at any time. If possible, bring your donation to the race on November 9.

Also, you can register at for $12.99 and receive a World Run Day t-shirt.

Hwy 60 Clean Up November 22nd

There is a highway 60 cleanup scheduled for November 22 (Saturday). We've now cleaned up the entire section of highway, so there's only a few months worth of trash and it shouldn't take long. Judging from what we get, we'll gauge how often we need to return.

Fall Running Series Continues Sunday October 19th

Be at the EMRTC building on the New Mexico Tech campus Sunday morning, September 28th, for the third 5K in the 2003 Fall Running Series. The first race, on September 7th, had 5 competitors, and was won by new Socorro resident Ephraim Ford. The second race, on September 28, had 10 competitors, and was won by NMT student David Romero.

Prizes go to the overall winners in each of four age groups in both genders. The series fee is $5 and that'll buy entry into both of the remaining two races and a series T-shirt. All races meet in front of the EMRTC building (at the rattlesnake sculpture). The actual courses will be determined later. Download a printable flyer here.

As mentioned in another article on this page, the last race, on November 9, is linked with World Run Day, a worldwide day of running and charity. Register at for $12.99 and receive a World Run Day t-shirt. We will also be accepting voluntary donations for the Animal Protective Association of Socorro.

Duke City And Rio Grande Marathon Date Conflict

It was recently brought to our attention that the Duke City Marathon (Albuquerque) and the Rio Grande Marathon (Las Cruces) have landed on the same date, October 26th. You choose. Both events offer a marathon, marathon relay, half-marathon, and 5K run and walk. Duke City also offers a marathon walk and a kids-K. Both are Boston qualifiers. Duke City has a website, while Rio Grande has an entry form, and will have a website by October.
