About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Fort Valley Trail System and Much More!

Watch more videos on Flotrail

Following up on Erin Strout's recent post on http://www.flagfootnotes.org/why-flagstaff-runs/ , I asked NATRA folks why they run. Twelve runners and Skyler then headed off to the trails of Fort Valley from Schultz Creek. We slowly split up with some heading up Moto, others taking Chimney, and we even found some newly named trails like Flue. Karen kept up our tradition of taking a spill and drawing blood! Everyone took their own routes before we returned for well deserved treats at the Kickstand!

29th Annual Native American's for Community Action Sacred Mountain Prayer 10/5K races

Watch more videos on Flotrail

500 runners took to the hills and trails of Observatory Mesa at the 29th Annual Native Americans for Community Action Sacred Mountain Prayer Run 10/5K. Steve Darden started runners off with the ceremonial whistle. A free 2K run followed. The sweatvac shirts were the most beautiful ever and most runners who won division awards proudly walked away wearing their Navajo turquoise necklace awards.
