Bring the kids and spend your weekend here at various tourist spots and several national and state parks. The Oliver Lee Memorial State Park is about 10 miles south on U.S. Route 54, offers camping, hiking, and picnicking. The White Sands National Monument is located about 15 miles SW of Alamogordo along US Route 70 and is a beautiful field of white sand dunes composed of gypsum crystals. They usually have informative presentations on their popular full-moon nights when the park is open late into the evening. The Lincoln National Forest offers hiking, fishing, and camping. The Sidney Paul Gordon Shooting Range, located about 3 miles north of town at 19 Rock Cliff Road in La Luz, is a supervised range with rifle, pistol, and archery ranges. Several competitions are held at the range each month.

Course Description
Route Description:

We have had to make some changes to the route because of construction.

All races start and end in the AlamoShape parking lot, 700 E. First St, in the Granada Shopping Center.

Runners head east out of the Granada Shopping Center to Florida. From Florida runners will head south and then east again onto Arapaho. Traveling Northeast, runners will continue east on First Street to Cuba where they will enter a footpath and run into the park. Exiting the footpath on Mountain view, runners will cross Washington and continue on Mountain View to College. At 10th and College 5k runners will reach their half way point and return back the same way they came.
Runners continuing will head east up 10th St to Scenic and then North on Scenic. 10 K Runners will find their midpoint just north of 18th St and Half Marathoners will continue to the Lowe's parking lot and back.
