Up & Over Weekend 2024

Spanning the first weekend of August, the Up & Over Weekend challenges runners with a demanding 10K Trail Run course on Saturday, August 3rd. On Sunday, August 4th runners can take on the daunting VerticAL’s VertK, quickly becoming a classic.

18th Annual Up & Over 10k

Saturday’s Up & Over 10K is notoriously challenging with many runners returning year-after-year to beat their PBs. There are many groups that run together; friends, co-workers, and whole families who want to take on the mountain. The course is a formidable and scenic 2,612’ climb from 9,321′ at the base, topping out at 11,819′. Expect amazing views of Kachina and Wheeler Peaks, followed by a technical descent through high alpine terrain. 

2nd Annual Vertic-AL’s Vert-K

On Sunday is the VerticAL’s Vert-K, a daunting vertical 1K up TAOS’s Al’s Run. In winter, Al’s is an intimidating long, steep black diamond ski run directly under Lift 1, carved with seemingly infinite measure of moguls. VerticAL’s participants will scramble up from the base to the finish at the top of Al’s  – a grueling gain of 1,497’. Due to the demanding terrain, this event will be open to participants 16+ years old.

Double Trouble!

All events offer incredible views of the mountains while the Up & Over and VerticAL’s are sure to push runners to their limits. Participants can choose to run one, or both events for the ultimate Up & Over challenge – the “Double Trouble”! Special prizes awarded to top male and female Double Trouble combined time winners.
