Quesadilla run slated for virtual running


They may not appear to go together, but Ngage New Mexico has made quesadillas and running a thing.

The Quesadilla Run, Q-Run for short, is being staged for the fourth year, but virtually for 2021.

Runners can choose when and where to run. The window to run Sunday, April 24 through Sunday, May 2. The registration deadline is Saturday, April 23.

The event has registrations and sponsorships this year from a national field, including one in Chicago.

To participate, each runner must monitor his or her time and distance and post it to the event website.

Registration is $20 for runners 20 and younger and $30 for all others. The first 150 to register receive a Quesadilla Run t-shirt, medal and face mask. Runners with social media accounts are encouraged to use the hashtag #Qrun.
