Why We Are Going Virtual For 2020
We contemplated cancelling and going virtual, back and forth, back and forth. We decided to go virtual for 2020. A number of factors had us going back and forth. Safety, can this work, the current situation we are all facing. The village of Old Oraibi was impacted by COVID-19 and we wanted to be respectful in letting Old Oraibi and other villages recover and heal, as well as the surrounding Navajo Nation, The State of Arizona and The United States Of America. We want to remind you it was a tough decision and we urge everyone to follow CDC guidelines and do your virtual race safely and in a healthy manner.
10K - $35.00
Registration will close SUNDAY JULY 12, 6 P.M. M.S.T. or if the 600 registration cap is reached, whichever occurs first.
***The next 100 will receive a race shirt and your medal will arrive a few weeks after.***
We will do registration online ONLY, no mail in registration as we are wanting to limit trips to the Post Office on our behalf.

WHY THE 10K ONLY?
We will do the virtual race 10K Only. However, this is your race, your pace, your time, your day. If you run 5K, finish the other 1/2 the next day.
You will have Friday, August 7 - Sunday, August 9, 2020 to complete your race.
Instead of gathering in Old Oraibi at 6 A.M., wake up wherever you are and lace up them shoes and go run, walk, crawl 6.2 miles. I'm sure that BIG SANDY HILL will miss you. This is a chance to show your strength in this challenging time.
Registered runners will receive a 2020 race t-shirt, race bib and of course a medal. We will reveal our race medal once we get a projection started for 2020 on our RunHopi Facebook Page.

When Will I Receive My Medal, T-Shirt and Bib?
This is our first time going virtual. We are going to make sure everyone who registers gets a T-Shirt, Medal and Bib for keepsake. Give us some time to get them to you, we want to make sure everything runs smooth and no one is overlooked and the right number of product is ready for everyone. YOUR RACE PACKET (Shirt, bib and medal) WILL BE MAILED ON LATE JULY 2020.
We are going to miss giving awards. However, if you own a GPS watch, map my run or other running GPS device. We would like to still give an overall award, to be eligible, submit a screen shot or pdf upload to RunHopi@yahoo.com of your mapped time and run of 6.2, we will award the fastest time submitted for a female and male solo runner for you competitive runners. Upload must be of August 7th, 8th or 9th, 2020.
