Weeks to Get in Shape for 30th Shiprock Marathon."  Native Village took the liberty of changing their headline to fit the timeframe.


New Mexico: Marathoners have only four weeks to get healthy and in shape to run in the 30th Shiprock Marathon.

The race will be held on Saturday, May 4 in Shiprock, New Mexico.


There are five options for event participants:

Full Marathon
Half Marathon
5 Person Marathon Relay
10K Trail Run/Walk
Kids' Marathon

Last year, over 1,500 runners took part in the five events. Participants will receive full course support during the run. This includes hydration and healthy snacks, a race shirt, finish line food, entertainment, unique age group awards, and official chip timing on the race course.

On the day before the marathon, a "Health & Wellness" Expo will be held at Diné College south campus in Shiprock.

All proceeds benefit NavajoYES, a Navajo Nation nonprofit, whose mission is to promote healthy living and lifelong fitness.
