New Mexico > Kirtland Air Force Base Armed Forces Day Run
Albuquerque, NM

Event Details

A mostly flat and even course along the streets that criss-cross Albuquerque's Kirtland Air Force Base await runners at the annual springtime running of the Kirtland Air Force Base Armed Forces Day Run, a half-marathon and 5K event that takes place the weekend before the Memorial Day holiday. From the starting line at the New Mexico Veterans Memorial just outside the base on Louisiana Boulevard, runners follow an out-and-back course that takes them southward into and back out of the base.

Runners follow a route that stays mostly straight for the early going of the run, as they cross through Kirtland's Ridgecrest Gate on their way down Louisiana Boulevard to Randolph Avenue. Once they reach Randolph, runners make a slight turn to the left and then continue down Randolph to the intersection with Hardin Boulevard, where they again turn left and then right onto Pennsylvania.

This part of the race takes runners all the way down Pennsylvania to the route's half-way turnaround, where runners then begin the trek back along the course they've just run back to the finish line at Veterans Memorial Park.
