We seek the long run, far from civilization and trailheads. We run to connect with nature and fight to protect the land.
Why We Run: Eli
As a rancher growing up in the rugged northeast corner of the Navajo Nation with no electricity or running water, Eli Neztsosie learned through years of work what it meant to rely on discipline and endurance. Now he relies on these same skills when running long distances—striving every day, in his words, to be better than he was the day before.
