GFNY Santa Fe: diverse terrains in the Southwest

September 16, 2021

GFNY Santa Fe is back with a beautiful and challenging course on September 19

GFNY Endurance Sports Series returns to the US for the first time this year with GFNY Santa Fe on Sunday, September 19. The race offers a long course of 75 miles and a (non-competitive) medium course of 61 miles.

The long course, with 7,150 feet of climbing, will take riders from downtown Santa Fe over the open plains and high desert to the dense forests of the southern Rocky Mountains. Riders are likely to test both their legs and their lungs with the near 15 mile climb to the finish line at Ski Santa Fe, leading up to a peak elevation of 10,350 feet.

The medium course also leads through the plains and rolling hills of the high desert but finishes back in downtown Santa Fe.

“We’re glad to be back in Santa Fe after having to sit out last year due to the pandemic. Its unique personality makes Santa Fe a perfect host town for GFNY,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

“With GFNY Florida on October 31 we have one more US based race in 2021 but we’re also already looking ahead to 2022 where we have several new US races in the works.”
