University of New Mexico Campus Run

The University of New Mexico campus, 2 miles east of downtown, is a popular place to run and exercise for many in the city. Located at the junction of the I-40 and I-25 highways, the campus is central city. Johnson Field is our starting point for the Campus Run and a great place for warm-up with a half mile cinder trail around the perimeter of the grass field. Heading east with a view of the Sandias provides a beautiful backdrop. Running in the evening can be particularly pretty, with the mountains turning into a pink shade before nightfall. Sandia, Spanish for watermelon, is what the Spanish conquistadors named the mountains because of their color at sunset. The campus has a mix of modern design and Spanish architecture. Our loop around the University of New Mexico North Golf Course hugs the streets of Indian School and University Boulevard within the campus, and has a 1.9 mile cinder path loop along the golf course’s edge. Running around the golf course makes for a great additional add on to a run and has some spectacular sunset views over the South Valley. One can also add on with some of the pathways within the pretty UNM campus, such as the serene Duck Pond located off Las Lomas Boulevard.

  1. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague
    who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch because I
    found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time
    to discuss this issue here on your web site.

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  5. I’m excited to discover this website. I need to to thank you for ones time for
    this wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every part of it and I
    have you bookmarked to check out new stuff in your website.

  6. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have offered to your post.
    They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for starters.
    Could you please lengthen them a bit from next
    time? Thanks for the post.

  7. An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    I believe that you should write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject
    but generally people don’t discuss these topics.

    To the next! All the best!!

  8. I think everything posted was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome post title?

    I am not saying your content isn’t good, however what if
    you added a post title that makes people
    desire more? I mean University of New Mexico Campus Run – Great Runs is a little boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to get
    people interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
    might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

  9. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always useful to read articles from other writers and practice something from their sites.

  10. Thank you for another wonderful article. The place else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect
    means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am
    at the search for such info.
