NBC 12 News reports that 4 Native American runners from Arizona all ran and finished the Boston Marathon on Monday. Congratulations to Trent Taylor, Anthony Masayesva, Steve Ovah and Caroline Sekaquaptewa!
All four runners finished the marathon race in under 3 hours, a major accomplishment for any runner. Taylor led the way finishing 219th out of more than 30,000 runners with around a six minutes per mile pace.
Both Steve Ovah and Caroline Sekaquaptewa were sponsored by We Run Strong, an organization dedicated to preserving the tradition of running for Hopi people and encouraging other Native and non Native people to participate in running activities.
Way to go guys!
