About This Activity

Brief Description

Join us for the 2015 World's Toughest 10k! This difficult and rewarding run starts near the Sandia Casino and runs up Tramway to finish at the Sandia Peak tram parking lot. Climb more than 1,000 feet total and you will get some of the best views of Albuquerque!

Registration Fees

Register early to save money! Through May 3th, fees are $35 ($32 for our fine military and Albuquerque Road Runner members). Between May 3th and May 16th, they go up $5. Race day registration is $45 for all.

Packet pick-up and late registration

Packet pick-up late registration will be at ABQ Running Shop on Saturday, May 16th from 10-5. ABQ Running Shop is located at 6550 Holly Ave Ne, Suite D-2. While you are there, check out numerous specials that will be going throughout the store.

Race Day Registration

We will have race day registration open starting around 6:00 and going through 6:40. At 6:40, registration will be closed. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE. This allows us to start the race right on time at 7.


The race course is extremely scenic and is a great way to take your mind off of the task at hand! We start near the Sandia Casino and wind our way up Tramway. Once Tramway turns directly south, we go left towards the Sandia Peak Tram parking lot. Total elevation gain is 1400 feet. Pace yourself for the last mile! An approximate map of the course can be viewed at http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3642352.


We're bringing back the gold, silver, and bronze beer mugs this year!  You'll receive them shortly after the finish once results are tabulated.  You'll also receive a hat or visor at packet pick up and registration.

This race will be chip timed.
