NACA Sacred Mountain Prayer Run

Background

The Sacred Mountain Prayer Run represents the intersection between physical, spiritual, emotional, and social wellness and is one of Flagstaff, Arizona's longest running foot races. Set at the foot of the San Fransisco Peaks just outside historic Downtown Flagstaff in Thorpe Park, the race offers participants varied distances on a challenging and rewarding course. All proceeds from the Sacred Mountain Prayer Run directly supports NACA's Supportive Services programs, providing critical services and resources to qualifying community members.

Our 2018 Prayer Runner - Mr. Thomas Hatathli

Thomas Hatathli, 59, was born and raised in Coalmine, Arizona, to the late Mary and Dan Hatathli. Thomas is Ta’neeszahnii (Tangle clan), born for Áshįįhi (Salt People clan), his maternal clan is Kinyaa’áanii (Towering House), and his paternal clan is Tsé deeshgizhnii (Rock Gap clan). Thomas considers running as self-therapy, and he himself has been a therapist for 32 years working with the Indian Health Service, serving Navajo and Hopi clients. He often spends weekends performing prayers and ceremonies, as he was ordained as a traditional healer in 1989. To maintain balance, Thomas upholds a healthy lifestyle by running. Running was instilled in him at a young age by his parents, who encouraged him to run in the early morning dawn to greet the Holy People. These teachings compelled him to accomplish running 16 Boston Marathons, with 59 marathons in total. Thomas appreciates the opportunities that both running and his medicine work has provided. With a full schedule, Thomas does not intend to slow down, he enjoys hiking and being an assistant coach to Tuba City High School’s cross country team. Thomas is honored to be this year’s 10K NACA Sacred Mountain Prayer stick carrier. He has participated in numerous Sacred Mountain Prayer runs since the mid-1980’s, and enjoys the challenging course with views of the sacred San Francisco Peaks.
