Welcome to the Louis Tewanima Footrace Homepage!

The Louis Tewanima Association is a non-profit grass roots organization who, since 1974, has sponsored the annual Louis Tewanima Memorial Footrace held each year on the Hopi reservation. This race is held in honor of Louis Tewanima, the first and only Hopi Olympian to represent the United States in the 1908 and 1912 Olympic Games. He won a Silver medal and set an American record for the 10,000-meter race in the 1912 Games that stood until broken by Billy Mills in 1964. We continue to commemorate his desire to promote the physical, health and well-being of Native American youth.

PRE-RACE DINNER

There will be a FREE Pre-Race “Carb” Dinner for all participants, family & volunteers from 5p.m.-8p.m. MST on Saturday, August 30st, 2014 at the Shungopavi Community Center in the Village of Shungopavi, located east of the Hopi Cultural Center on Hwy 264.
