Join us for the 2013 World's Toughest 10k! This difficult and rewarding run starts near the Sandia Casino and runs up Tramway to finish at the Sandia Peak tram parking lot. Climb more than 1,000 feet total and you will get some of the best views of Albuquerque!

Race Day Registration

The race course is extremely scenic and is a great way to take your mind off of the task at hand! We start near the Sandia Casino and wind our way up Tramway. Once Tramway turns directly south, we go left towards the Sandia Peak Tram parking lot. Total elevation gain is 1400 feet. Pace yourself for the last mile! An approximate map of the course can be viewed at http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3642352.
We're bringing back the gold, silver, and bronze shirts this year! We will have men's and women's specific shirts, so select your size at registration. You'll also receive a custom World's Toughest 10k mug when you pick up your packet. The shirts will be available approximately 2 weeks after the event
New this year is that the race will be chip timed.
