Directions

Packet Pickup/Prerace Dinner:  Packet pickup Friday from 4-7 pm will be at Del Prado Cafe in Cuba on HWY 550 on the South side (plenty of parking). The Cafe is offering 20% off all menu items plus free drinks to all race participants.

Ultra Start/Ultra and Marathon Finish: From Cuba, NM head south on 550 to HWY 197.  Turn west on 197 and follow the road for 4 miles. Watch for signs.  Turn left  at the sign (south) onto a dirt road. Race volunteers will direct you where to park.  Marathon runners pick up bus here.

Mesa Portales Aid Station / Turn around for 18 mile course (~mile 9/43): Take 550 south from Cuba. Between mile marker 54 and 53, take a right on the graded dirt road. We will put up a sign on race day. Follow that road for 3.6 miles to the aid station. This road is usually passable by passenger cars, but may not be if it has rained recently.

53 mile Turn Around Aid Station (mile 26.5)/Marathon Start: Head south from Cuba on US 550. Between mile marker 42 and 41, there will be a sign on the right pointing towards Cabezon, San Luis, and Torreon. Turn right (west) at this road (HWY 279). Go down this road for 8.7 miles.  Directly before it turns into a dirt road, turn right on the paved Torreon Road. Head north for 3.7 miles. As you crest a hill after a small canyon, there will be an unmarked dirt road on the right. Turn right. The aid station will be 100 feet up the road. Please park on the dirt road.
