The Spring Handicap Running Series started and we need help to chart new MTB courses!
There will be races on January 23rd, February
13th, March 6th, and April 3rd. For more information on races outside
of Socorro, click on the statewide races calendar on the left side of
the page or here.
For the mountain bikers, please stop by Spoke N Word Cycles to see how YOU can help
map out new and personal trails in the Gordy's (or Johnson') hill area! BLM needs our help in making
this a great biking area. They will provide GPS units and give you a map of what you charted. Also, take some time to
check out the Fat
Tire Trail Guide, an awesome resource on the current local trails!

event. That didn't stop us from racing hard, though! Age Group race results below:
