TWA Crash Site Run

As the summer heat approaches, so does the closure of our beloved mountain - The Sandias.  In a last effort attempt, the Dukes Track Club rallied the troops for a Saturday morning run to the famous 1955 TWA Crash site.  We beat the morning heat and all made it up and back without a flaw.  Thanks to all who joined in on this mini 2 hour adventure.  Next up... Sunday morning run to South Peak.

As the weather scorches us, we still plan on meeting even more this summer!  For this week, we shall be at the following locations for workouts and adventure runs!  Since the Sandia Mountains will be closed for fire danger starting June 10th, we figured we'd get some last minute mountain runs in at the following locations:
