The Border to Badlands Ultra
Come run in a prehistoric area dating back some 10,000 years, where Indigenous people left cave art as evidence of their presence tucked into the weather-beaten Chihuahuan Desert. This desert is the second largest desert in North America! Experience the uniqueness of the desert wildlife and flora, be awe-inspired by the incredible views of Seminole Canyon meeting the Rio Grande River, and view, at a distance, cave art as you traverse this loop course over technical single-track trail and backcountry jeep roads.
