About the Race/Registration

Race the front prairie with a beautiful view of Pikes Peak in Fountain Valley's annual Ha-Hatse Sachini 5K Run/Walk. Ha-Hatse Sachini or "prairie warrior," is a tribute to the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. In that year, the pueblos of New Mexico, led by Pope, a San Juan Medicine Man, took the Spanish rulers by storm.

Pope devised an ingenious plan to signal the beginning of the revolt; runners from Taos were sent to each pueblo with identical knoted cords. Each knot on the cord represented a day; each morning a knot was untied, and when all the knots were gone, the revolt began. In several days, the Taos runners ran to all pueblos in an attempt to take back their sacred land.
