Looking for a fun way to get active this weekend? It’s not too late to register for the 2017 Hopi 10K, 5K and two-mile races Aug. 12.
This unique race takes runners through centuries-old Hopi paths at an elevation of 6,500 feet, according to the event’s website.
The races will take place in Northeast Arizona’s Hopi Indian Reservation in the village of Oraivi, which is believed to be the oldest, continuous, inhabited settlement in the country, dating back to 1150 A.D.
Runners and walkers of every ability are welcome to participate.
The 10K begins at 6 a.m., the 5K and two-mile races begin at 6:45 a.m.
The race registration fees are as follows:
Two-mile- $15 (Registration for the two-mile race is only available on race day)
