Running has never fulfilled an exclusive purpose for Indigenous people. Instead it is and has been embedded in all aspects of life and survival. People ran to pray, share messages, deliver goods, and compete.
Today, the context has changed but many of the purposes for running remain. Indigenous people continue to organize events and run on their own terms. We spotlight running events that showcase the beauty of Indigenous people and communities.
Keep up with us at Red Earth Running Co.! Come back here to view our upcoming events. We will be traveling all over the Midwest this summer and we can't wait to meet you.
