Full Moon Half Marathon and Trail Races
This is a night time race on brand new trails built over the last few months at the Galisteo Basin Preserve. All the races start just before sunset at 8:00PM. Don't worry the moon is scheduled to come up shortly after sunset so you can take in the beautiful scenery from the tops of the hills you just climbed.
This fun event is a fundraiser for the Preserve. A portion of your entry fees will go to supporting new trails at GBP. So far there are just over 40 miles of trails that are free and open to the public on the Preserve. Most of these trails are created and built by volunteers with the cooperation of the Preserve staff and board.
Your selection of races includes half-marathon, 14 KM (9ish miles) and 6.42 KM (4 miles) races. Normally the Preserve is closed from sunset to sunrise but we have been given special permission to have this event on the July full moon! Don't miss this one.
