ABOUT THE RACE: The Las Montanas FunRacer is a scenic trail race nestled in the Cibola National Forest in Placitas, just north of Albuquerque. This event has something for everyone. There are three distances: 1 Mile, 5K, and 10K. There are events for the kids, and you can even bring your dog along for the 5K. If you're looking to record your finish time, choose from the 5K Timed or 10K Timed Run.
