Superbowl foothills fat run returns next Sunday!

There's more than one way to get in shape for the upcoming 2024 Spring season! Dust off your trail running shoes and say goodbye to bulk season, it's time to cut weight and get shredded! The annual New Mexico Brujos Superbowl Fat Boy Run is returning next Weekend! Just in time for the start of the Spring rugby season, this run started years ago as a fun way to knock the winter fat off in anticipation of the season. We’ve since turned it into a fundraiser for suicide awareness. Please join us for the “hash” style run.

It’s a race and there are drinking challenges set up in secret locations along the course.

Please bring a cash donation, $5 minimum.

Event starts at 10 AM on Superbowl Sunday, February 11th, 2024 at the Embudo trailhead at the top of Indian School rd.

The Brujos return home for their first home match of the season against Phoenix on March 2nd. It's back on I-40 on March 16th to visit the Flagstaff Landsharks, before returning home to finish out the season against Camelback on March 23rd.
