Description:

TCR Productions and Explora present Explora’s Run for Science: Bosque Boogie 2014 on Sunday, October 5, 2014 in the Rio Grande cottonwood bosque corridor between Montaño and Paseo del Norte.
 
The Bosque Boogie is one of the country’s most unique races. The 10K (6.2 miles) and 5K (3.1 miles) race course winds through the largest cottonwood bosque (Spanish for “forest”) corridor in the United States, on a levee embankment road and a single track trail system. Participants are introduced to the Rio Grande cottonwood ecosystem which runs alongside the Rio Grande river and its floodplain and supports a variety of native plants and animals.
 
This race benefits Explora Science Center & Children’s Museum of Albuquerque. Your participation supports the significant hands-on educational activities Explora provides our community and our state, including serving more than 232,000 people a year with educational programs in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
 
Explora annually facilitates over 2,200 educational programs to more than 61,000 students from schools and other organizations in all 33 counties of New Mexico, and provides over 10,000 no-cost Explora memberships to low-income families, providing them unlimited access to our science-rich offerings.
