We Run aims to motivate and inspire Native people to embrace running as a way of life and also educate Non-natives about the strong cultural significance of running in Native cultures. Running has been an important part of the fabric of our indigenous lives for centuries and we want to share our love of running with people of all backgrounds. You will find connections with runners and running events on Tribal lands on this website as well as at our annual We Run runners forum held in January. We encourage you to participate in running events on Tribal lands and we hope you join us at the 2015 forum at the Moenkopi Legacy Inn & Suites in the Upper Village of Moenkopi, one of the 12 Hopi villages on our ancestral lands.
The Man Against Horse 50 Mile Ultra is just as the race event is titled. Men and Women will race Horses through 50 Miles of the Prescott Valley. This year an effort was made by many Native American runners to go out to the event and honor the late Dennis Poolheco's (Hopi-Tewa) ultra running legacy. Dennis was been a repeat champion of this race, and still holds the course record. Hopi Steven Ovah shares his experience here.
