This morning Hopi runners Caroline Sekaquaptewa and Steven Ovah will compete in the Boston Marathon! The Elite Women’s Division will begin at 9:32AM (ET), and the Elite Men’s Division will start at 10:00AM (ET). You can follow the marathon live at http://universalsports.com/. This is a big deal for Hopi. It’s not every year that runners from back home have an opportunity to represent our people in this event!
