New Mexico Half Marathons 2014 and 2015

New link to the --------> New Mexico Half Marathons page!  The New improved Half Marathon Calendar!

The New Mexico Half Marathon Calendar is a complete simplistic listing of NM half marathons. Currently the New Mexico half marathon schedule has 2014 New Mexico half marathons and 2015 New Mexico half marathons as they roll in.  New Mexico half marathons 2014 & New Mexico half marathons 2015 also identify trail half marathons and walker friendly half marathons by a (T) symbol and a (W) symbol.  The (T) means it is a TRUE trail half marathon (off road, switchbacks, etc) and a (W) means it is truly "official walker friendly" requiring the half marathon to allow a minimum of 18:32 mile pace, minimum 4 hours for participants to finish the 13.1 mile distance.

The New Mexico half marathon race calendar features a complete listing of Albuquerque half marathons, Los Alamos half marathons, Las Cruces half marathons, Roswell half marathons, Clayton half marathons, Lovington half marathons, Shiprock half marathons, Taos half marathons, Valles Caldera half marathons, Red River half marathons, Santa Fe half marathons, and many more 1/2 marathons in NM.

Day of the Dead Marathon and Half Marathon Series Was a Hit!

As usual, Mainly Marathons put on another great 4 day event, Day of the Dead Series, which started out in El Paso, Texas for the 1st day, then off to Willcox, Arizona and finishing off day 3 and 4 in Las Cruces, New Mexico!  As usual, this event attracts many members from Fifty States Half Marathon Club, working towards their 50 States Half Marathon Challenge, 50 States Endurance Challenge, 100 Half Anywhere Challenge, or already on their way to their 500 Endurance Challenge!  The events have been a fun way to bring members together to knock out multiple states toward their 50 states in a shorter period of time, and have a lot of fun doing it!



Day of the Dead series was the last Mainly Marathon event series for 2013, and next up is another year of the Dustbowl Series, set to take place on March 22nd, 2014, covering 5 states (TX, OK, KS, CO, NM).
