This is one big party! Run to Raton (R2R) is Northern New Mexico's premier motorcycle rally and bike event.

R2R is held in the middle of July on Historic First Street in Raton, New Mexico.

Hundreds of people pour into Raton to embrace our wild west history and mountain culture. Classic car owners bring their cars and trucks from states away to display, while bike riders come from across the country to ride through the Rockies.

This event features live music, vendors, food and the up-and-coming Miss Run to Raton Pinup Contest. If you like classic cars, bikes, music, and pinups, this is a fun event you won't want to miss!

Enjoy cool mountain breezes, fresh water lakes, and celebrate the weekend in Historic Downtown Raton! One the biggest attractions of R2R is the chance to win a custom-painted bike by J.P. Rodman.

Expect car shows, tattoos, vendors, and the freedom to explore Raton and its surrounding communities via motorcycle. Plenty of ventures await visitors, including kayaking, fishing, and camping in Sugarite Canyon State Park and enjoying the views from atop Capulin Volcano or the Raton Sign on Goat Hill.

Turn up the music and make memories on the highest point of the historic Santa Fe Trail!
