Meet and Compete (16 and older) with Senior Affairs. More information to follow.

National Senior Games – Albuquerque 2019

This is a very big honor for Albuquerque and will bring with it significant prestige for our city. The NM Senior Olympics in 2018 will be the New Mexico qualifying event for the National Games. Plan to participate in 2019 since there will be minimal travel expenses for New Mexico and other Southwest players!
