Stay at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino

From the beginning Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino has been been an amazing partner in our Half Marathon. Governor George Rivera was a founding member of our race and we are proud to offer discounted room rates and room blocks at this fine establishment. They are available now, so when you call just mention you are with Santa Fe Thunder half marathon and you will be taken care of.


Santa Fe as an Active Outdoor Sport Destination

Of course there is our Half Marathon which the Daily Burn ranked one of the top 50 (Slide #31) in the US. Going into our fourth year with our USTAF certified mostly downhill course at altitude we couldn’t agree more. But now there are some other exciting events and articles that make Santa Fe a premier destination for the active outdoor adventure sport enthusiast. Register here:


The Santa Fe Century has been around for 29 years and it is an amazing event. With rides through the landscape painters have been drawn to for decades. It is truly worth making the trip.

Now though the Biking is getting bigger and better with the Outside Magazine Bike and Brew Festival. It is an all weekend event with trail rides, road rides, expositions, concerts, beer tastings etc… We are super excited to have this coming to Santa Fe and we hope you can come participate with all of us.

With some work by the state tourism department (Carlos Condit NMTrue training video, previous post) we hope to draw all types of athletes to our state to compete, train at altitude, and have a good time, New Mexico style 🙂
