Shiprock is the English name for Tsé Bit’a’í, which is the Dine’ name meaning “Rock with Wings”. Because it is sacred to the Dine’, climbing around on it is strictly forbidden. Tsé Bit’a’í figures into several stories, and is part of several ceremonies. This is what makes it sacred- it … MORE

    Ran this race as my first ever half marathon because it required no travel on my part. The course is flat which is nice, however the weather this year was hot. Post race area is crowded, congested and very loud. I did not stick around. However, scenery was very neat (high desert) and the bussing to start line was organized. Race was good.

    This marathon was freezing to start (blowing snow), and a dust storm to end…seriously. Here are some things to know.
    -Altitude will hurt you if you are a low level flat-lander like me, don’t discount it
    -GU was not at the stations where it should have been
    -Half marathoners consumed all gels at the end of race course before marathoners arrived
    -Scenery is beautiful, actually, amazing!!!
    -Swag is really good

    This net downhill, point-to-point marathon begins close to the Arizona border and ends at Shiprock High School. Everything in between is mostly gorgeous, endless desert. Don’t run this race if you like your scenery to change. Run this race if you like the feeling of running, pure and simple. You will feel like you’re not going anywhere, but in the ethereal, almost poetic infinity of the desert, I ran happily. Though the elevation hovers around 4,000 feet, the gradual downhill and bone-dry air should boost you to a fast time.
