Description: The Amerind Museum presents the 5th annual Texas Canyon Trail Run. Here’s your chance to intimately experience this awe inspiring region that is normally closed to the public. Run or walk the scenic 5K or 10K courses in beautiful Texas Canyon. Participation in the event enables Amerind to further its mission of fostering and promoting knowledge and understanding of the Native Peoples of the Americas through research, education, and conservation. In a culture of running, it is no surprise that many Native communities have ways of encouraging runners along their path. Among the O'odham of Arizona and Sonora, singing is important at all community events and celebrations. At the Texas Canyon Trail Run, Amerind is honored to welcome the No:lic Traditional Singers and Dancers. They are from the community of No:lic on the Tohono O'odham Nation. Most of their singers belong to a multi-generational family that values their ancient singing and dance traditions. On April 7, they will sing traditional O'odham songs in their Native language to encourage the trail runners along their way. Once you have completed the race, please stay for the Awards Ceremony at 11:00 am and grab a bite to eat from the Wicked Burgers food truck. Your race registration also includes free entry into the Amerind Museum and Art Gallery. Simply show your bib number to the admissions desk to take advantage of this offer. The Texas Canyon Trail Run starts at 9:00. We have onsite parking and Race Day registration is available. The packet pickup starts at 7:30 a.m. We believe you will experience trail running at its best on a course that takes you through spectacular Texas Canyon, an area that will only be open to the public on race day. Please remember, no baby joggers, no dogs, no headsets, in compliance with our insurance requirements---- you will really want to be “in the moment” anyway. We have three water stations on the course. If you expect to need more than that on the course, you may want to carry your own additional water. Also, please comply with our no smoking policy.
