Running Medicine decided to create a new Thanksgiving tradition and since giving thanks is such a big part of who we are and what we do, the Gratitude Run/Walk was a perfect fit. We partnered with the Bosque School to hold the inaugural event in 2016, expecting 50-75 people to come join us. 405 people signed in to run/walk that day!!!! Lots of smiles, happiness and a good sign that we had created something special.
Year two brought even more energy, partners, homemade race bibs for people to write what they are thankful for, a hot air balloon, and a jumper for kids. This time, our numbers surpassed 700 registrants, making it one of the biggest running/walking events in New Mexico (we think that only Run for the Zoo, Duke City Marathon and Shiprock Marathon are bigger!).There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
