International Marathon Fundraiser

2019's Half and Full Marathon!

This year we are going to Cancun!

Who can go? Anyone! We are looking for 5 runners to compete in Mexico! 

What will we do? All runners will be invited to explore the indigenous culture Mexico has to offer before and after the race. We will be  running either a half or a full marathon to raise funds for the Sioux Y's Global Indigenous Youth Program. This program connects our youth and teens to other indigenous youth from around the world!

Where is the race happening? The race is in beautiful Cancun, Mexico!

When is it? The 2019 race is on December 7th. 

Why should I go? If you are looking for a fun an creative way to give back to the communities the Sioux Y is involved in, look no further.
