About The Hawk SqWalk and Run
The Hawk SqWalk and Run Half Marathon in Albuquerque, New Mexico on 25 February 2023 is an event to behold! Set along the picturesque Rio Grande river, this 13.1 mile course is a challenging but rewarding experience for participants of all abilities. The route winds through Downtown Albuquerque before heading west towards Old Town and then north up into the Sandia Mountains, offering gorgeous views of the city skyline and surrounding landscape.
For runners looking to tackle some elevation changes during their race, the Hawk SqWalk & Run has plenty to offer – from rolling hills throughout downtown to steep inclines as you climb up into the mountains. On a clear day (which is typical for that time of year), you can see for miles across the desert valley below with breathtaking views in every direction – truly one of a kind!
As far as crowds go, there’s usually between 500-1000 people at any given point along the route, so it’s not too overwhelming or crowded yet still provides a great atmosphere full of encouragement and camaraderie amongst fellow racers. There’ll also be plenty of spectators cheering everyone on which helps keep your spirits high when things get tough out on the course.
One unique feature that makes this half marathon stand out from others is its “Runners vs Walkers Challenge” – where walkers are challenged to beat runners across specific check points along the way! This adds an extra level of fun and competition amongst participants as they strive for personal bests or just enjoy themselves with friends while taking in all that Albuquerque has to offer during their race journey.
Overall, The Hawk SqWalk & Run Half Marathon offers something special for runners who want more than just another flat road race: stunning scenery combined with exciting challenges make it an unforgettable experience worthy of its place on anyone’s bucket list!
