Albuquerque is quickly become an international training ground for runners all over the world.

A group of elite runners from Japan have been in New Mexico for about a month training in preparation for the 2016 Olympics. They chose Albuquerque for the altitude and weather.

These women will take part in the first ever Bernco Open Space Fun Run on Saturday at the UNM north golf course.
