NACA Sacred Mountain Prayer Run celebrates 26th year
Runners come from around the world to honor the Peaks

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The San Francisco Peaks are held sacred by 13 Arizona tribes, and amazingly, people from around the world are aware of this fact. This year's race was especially poignant as informed runners realized that the sanctity of these sacred Peaks are once again threatened by the Arizona Snowbowl's intention to expand ski areas and make artificial snow out of treated wastewater. How do YOU feel about this? Vote in our online poll below.
