SANTA FE TO BUFFALO THUNDER HALF MARATHON SEPT. 20, 2020
The Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half Marathon is more than a race; it is a destination event that celebrates a joyous activity that all cultures share, and opportunity to test their fitness and endurance at high altitude.
Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half Sept 20,2020 @ 7:30.A.M.
As in previous years, the Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half Marathon course will be fast and scenic, dropping over 1,300 feet after a gradual climb for the first 2 miles. The race starts at historic Fort Marcy Park in the heart of Santa Fe.
Runners will head north on the Old Taos Highway with its spectacular views of the 13,000-foot-high Sangre de Cristo mountains to the east and the 11,000 foot Jemez Mountains to the west. The aspen trees in both ranges will be in peak fall colors. At the 3-mile mark near the Santa Fe Opera, runners will begin their descent into the Pojoaque Valley with a seemingly limitless view of northern New Mexico to entice them toward the finish line at the magnificent Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino.
Packet Pickup & World Indigenous Festival Saturday September 19th 9AM - 4PM
Poeh Cultural Center (78 Cities of Gold Road, Pojoaque – see map). About 15 miles north of Santa Fe and just north of Buffalo Thunder (you can check out the half marathon course as you drive north – and can take the frontage roads, which are the course. Enjoy all the bridges!) Parking and entry are FREE. Our goal is to provide participants and artists the opportunity to share the passion and creativity.
There will be frequent aid stations along the course with friendly volunteers and great swag bags. But what is sure to put this race at the top of every runner’s list will be the amazing vistas offered along the mostly downhill course.
It is therefore important that all six runners do their best to achieve the fastest possible team performance. The Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half 'N' Marathon Relay will take place in northern New Mexico Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020.
The destination half marathon will start in Fort Marcy Park near downtown Santa Fe and will end in the Rio Grande Valley at the Pueblo of Pojoaque's Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino.
The 5k & 1 Mile fitness walk will start at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino. The course will follow a long Towa golf course to word Butterfly trail and end at the same location.
