About This Activity

The 11th Annual Forever Young Run & Walk is a celebration in memory of Charlie Young, an avid runner, cyclist and outdoorsman, and includes a 3 mile run/walk and a 6 mile run. Please join us for a fun event with a beautiful view, breakfast burritos and coffee at the base of the Sandia Mountains in Placitas. Sponsored by the Albuquerque Road Runners.

Event details and schedule

Events begin at 9 am. Both courses are on rolling hills along the Bernalillo Watershed Road. To get there, take I-25 north from Albuquerque to exit 242, and head east for 2.1 miles on Highway 165. The start is approximately half a mile east of the Homestead Village shopping mall, on the south side of the road. Parking is along the shoulder on 165. 

Prizes will go to the first three finishers (male/female) in each of the following categories: Youth (age 1 - 39), Masters (age 40-49), Grand Masters (age 50-59), Seniors (60-69), Geezers (70+).

In honor of Charlie, who always raced without a shirt, participants who run shirtless (not topless) will receive two dollars back at the finish line.

Runners over 70 are free! (you will be carded)
