FREE registration is now available for the annual “Indian Market 5K”. This event will celebrate another successful summer of Running & Fitness Camps and the organization’s 26th anniversary of promoting health and wellness amongst youth in Indian Country. FREE race t-shirts will be dispersed on a first registered, first-served basis. Quantities are limited to 192 pieces, adult and youth sizes combined.
Peep at the official 2014 Wings 5K race shirt!
We are excited to host the event at The Downs of Santa Fe for the first time. The move will give participants the opportunity to run a true cross country course complete with rolling grass hills and some quality dirt path. Perhaps even a few competitors will spike up? Expect to see hay bales on the course too!
Aside from the 5K, we will run a 2K on the in-field for our up-and-coming track stars ages 4-11. Registration includes a race t-shirt (see graphics below) and refreshments after the run.
Race registration packet pick up will be held on Saturday, August 23rd at our SWAIA booth located in the Cathedral Park (booth #8 across from the Children’s Art Tent) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. That’s not all, this year we will have a FREE BACK TO SCHOOL SHOE DISTRIBUTION for any and all American Indian Youth. So please stop by our booth this weekend. **Your student(s)/Child(ren) must be present to receive a pair of shoes. Sizes and styles are limited.**
**Spikes will be permitted on the course. 1/4″ or smaller recommended.**
Parking in a dirt lot at the track is FREE. All participants will be required to walk to the center of the track to start the race via the tunnel beneath the south turn.
