This event is crowned as the hardest "fat ass" ultra by the Sacramento mountain runners. Are you ready for the Challenge?
What is Llamapalooza : well in short it’s 12 hour fat ass ultra to see who can get the most laps around the famous Llama trail here in Alamogordo! The llama trail is 4.0 miles long with 885 elevation gain in the first 1.5 miles. It’s a technical and rocky trail with fun downhill! The Trail begins at the bottom of the base of the mountain range at the New Mexico State Alamogordo south parking lot. The trail is technical double track with some single track at the top of the trail with views of white sands and the Tularosa basin. On the uphill you will climb 1.5 miles including the 19% grade heartbreak hill ascending the top of Llama. Through the downhill you will come across a beautiful cave with sandstone rocks. The downhill is technical but fast and makes for one of the best downhills in the state! There will be two aid stations, one at the top near the cave heading on the downhill and one at the bottom at the start of the trailhead.
