Texas Canyon Trail Run
Venue: Amerind Museum
Time: Starting: 9:00 AM
The Amerind Museum presents the 6th Annual Texas Canyon Trail Run. Heres your chance to intimately experience this awe-inspiring region that is normally closed to the public. Run or walk the scenic 5K or 10K courses in beautiful Texas Canyon. Participation in the event enables Amerind to further its mission of fostering and promoting knowledge and understanding of the Native Peoples of the Americas through research, education, and conservation.
In a culture of running, it is no surprise that many Native communities have ways of encouraging runners along their path. Among the Oodham of Arizona and Sonora, singing is important at all community events and celebrations. At the Texas Canyon Trail Run, Amerind is honored to welcome the No:lic Traditional Singers and Dancers from the community of No:lic on the Tohono Oodham Nation. Most of their singers belong to a multi-generational family that values their ancient singing and dance traditions. As part of the event, they will sing traditional Oodham songs in their Native language to encourage the trail runners along their way.
Your race registration also includes free entry into the Amerind Museum and Art Gallery. Sign up early to receive discounted registration.
