In coordination with the Shiprock, Red Valley, Ghadii’ahi Beclabito and Cove chapters, NavajoYES and our entire Shiprock Marathon race team is excited to present our new course! The 2020 Shiprock Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay will join the 10K and 5K as courses that are primarily on dirt roads and trails. You will experience Tse’ bit’a’i like never before, running a clockwise loop around the Pinnacle! The official course map will be out soon and registration will open on November 1. See you on the trail!
The Shiprock Marathon is going VIRTUAL!
Starting Monday, we will be hosting four races in four weeks during the month of April.
The Virtual Marathon works like this:
The week of Monday, April 6 through Sunday the 12th will be the window in which to run your 5K. Your schedule, your course. Just submit the form with your info and your time, and and you’re in the results. This is the form for the 5k: https://forms.gle/ot3Uvgst688qQCNi8
Here are the rest of the April events:
During the week beginning on April 13, it’s time to run your HALF MARATHON.
The week of April 20 is a 10K
And, finally, the week of April 27 is a MARATHON.
Do all four and earn free entry to either the Asaayi Mountain Run or Code Talker 29K events. Male and female winners of each race also get free entries. Cool stickers for everyone, too. There is no fee to take part in the Virtual Marathon. Running or walking outside is good medicine in these strange times, so let’s keep on moving!
You can hit us up here or at email@example.com if you have any questions, and let’s spread the word!! More info on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/chuskaman
