Official race hotel Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino offers a special race weekend discount. As soon as we have more info, we’ll post it here and on our home page! Stay tuned.

Global Running Culture, a non profit organization, puts on the event to benefit its programs. ALL proceeds go to GRC. And, the event is 100% volunteer organized!

You should have received a confirmation email, but things happen. Right now, the easiest thing to do is to shoot us an email and we’ll check! register@santafethunder.com

To be announced!

Yes! We don’t suggest it (just because the morning is hectic!), but you certainly can! For the half marathon, park at Buffalo Thunder, take a shuttle to the starting line, which is at Ft. Marcy in Santa Fe. Your packet will be waiting for you. If you are running the 5k or walk, you may pick up your packet at the starting line, on the west side of Buffalo Thunder.

Yes, they are! We just require the ‘passenger’ to register (it’s free!). After the adult participant has registered, just email us at register@santafethunder.com and we’ll get you set. And, the ‘passenger’ gets a finishers medal too!


All events start at 7:30am

| There are six aid stations, two miles apart, with port-a-potties at each stop.

If you do not park at Buffalo Thunder, we will have limited bus transportation available back to Fort Marcy/downtown Santa Fe, leaving after the race from south side of the finish area. Look for the yellow school bus and listen for announcements. We plan to have buses leave at 10:30 and 11:30.


Absolutely! All finishers for all events receive a 2017 medal.

Our age-group medals are handmade by Pueblo artists and are awarded to the top three age-group finishers in the half marathon and the 5k.

Here are medals from our previous races. Good luck!

Prize money is three deep (male and female) for half marathon: $1,000, $500, $250 and Masters prize money
