A few of the Trail Runs we run (Strava Route Links):

Thursday Night Mountain Bike Time Trials: Starting May 30th

The Thursday night mountain bike time trial (TNMTBTT) is an event held by Triatomics typically from the beginning of June until August. The event is a "race", where participants start at the same time with a sprint of the start line.


Location: PTLA track behind the lab parking garage

Route: 3 km long loop of the lab fitness trail. The trail used is intermediate level and has a single track/fire road climb with a rocky but not to steep single track descent.

Warm Up Time: 5:30 pm - warm up/sighting lap. The warm up lap is a very easy pace.

"Race Time": 6:00 pm - Upon completing the warm up lap, we start the event at 6:00 pm. Many people choose to skip the warm up lap and come for the for the “official” start at 6:00 pm. Two laps are usually raced and times range from 18-35 minutes and some beginners choose to only complete only one lap.

Timing: The event is usually timed in a casual way and results are sent out by email.


The TNMTBTT is a great weeknight event with a friendly atmosphere and all with at least a bit of MTB experience are welcome!


The PTLA trail is on LANL property and is labeled as LANL badge holders only.
