Welcome to Los Alamos Road Runners Web site.
The Atomic City Roadrunners is a family-oriented walking and jogging club that meets every Tuesday April through October for a pace race in which members predict their own time. Anyone can choose to walk or run for one mile or three, and the slowest walker can be a winner if his or her finish time is closest to that predicted.
The first and last meetings are the Cooper Run, a 1.5 mile course to measure aerobic capacity. Using tables developed by Dr. Ken Cooper (which adjusts points for altitude, gender and age) joggers can determine present fitness and check again at the end of the season to measure improvement.
During the season, pace races are held on various streets and trails throughout Los Alamos County. Registration immediately precedes each run with fifty-cent fee for members and students (high school age and below) and one dollar fifty cents for non-members. Members who participate in at least ten runs get a special club T-shirt at the end of the season (members who choose to sponsor a race receive double credit for that run).
In addition to the regular pace races, there will be special races or relays throughout the season, some with prizes. The season culminates in November with the Annual Turkey Trot sponsored in conjunction with CROP and LA Cares, two charity organizations.
Turkeys and pumpkin pies are awarded by random drawing.
Dues are twenty dollars for an individual and thirty dollars for a family membership.
