Runners participate in 33rd Annual Duke City Marathon

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– A gorgeous morning out there for runners hitting the asphalt for the Duke City Marathon.

Sunday marked the 33rd annual run, which was started back in 1984 by then Mayor Harry Kinney along with the actual 15th Duke of Albuquerque, who traveled from Spain for the event.

Runners set out at 7 a.m. Sunday from Civic Plaza, winding around past the BioPark and along the Bosque Trail.

The run finished up back at Civic Plaza with a post-race festival.

Albuquerque native Solomon Kandie was the winner of this year’s Duke City Marathon. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
