About This Activity

The Monument Valley Marathon and Half is the third event in the Navajo Parks Race Series.

The Navajo Parks Race Series was conceived in 2015 as a means of promoting community wellness, lifelong fitness and an appreciation of the beautiful lands of the Dine’ Nation. The project was spearheaded by Y.E.S. for Dine’ Bikeyah (NavajoYES), a Navajo Nation-based nonprofit, with support from the Office of Navajo President & Vice President, Navajo Parks & Recreation and the Navajo Division of Health. The events – which will include 10K races, arduous trail runs, kids events, ultras, marathons and relays – will be held throughout the year, across the Nation.
