Hashkènìinii Bike Race
Based on a course at Navajo Mountain, Utah
50-mile road race at the location of your own design

Yá’át’ééh riders! Welcome to the Hashkènìinii Bike Race!
REGISTRATION – Online registration for the race is now open through 10:00 p.m. on Friday, May 29 at the NavajoYES website: www.navajoyes.org Registration includes a performance t-shirt, finisher’s medal and plaque awards to top finishers. All registered riders who submit their times by the end of May 30 will have their times posted. Please submit your info and evidence of your time after your race. Any proceeds beyond our costs will be donated to COVID-19 relief.
Enjoy whatever route you create.
ROUTES – The original race route was a 50+ mile road race between Tsaabiikiin (Inscription House) and Natsisaan (Navajo Mountain). If you live in that area, feel free to ride the course. All other riders must submit a GPS track of a 50-mile course ridden between May 1 and sundown on May 30, 2020. The original course was mostly flat on both ends, with some big rolling hills in the middle section, roughly 25 miles. Again, the total distance should be 50 miles.
AWARDS – All riders will receive a finisher’s medal. There will be plaque awards for overall champion, overall runner-up, masters winner (50+) and youth winner (18 and under).
In spite of what the medal says, this is a ROAD RACE, not a mountain bike race.
Please complete your ride on 50 miles of paved road.
The t-shirt will feature the likeness of Dine’ leader Hashkeniinii (shown above right),
a legend in this area from the Long Walk era.
