Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Honors Historic Pueblo Leader Popé In First Albuquerque Run

Albuquerque, NM (July 8, 2013) – Time is drawing near to pre-register online for the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s first annual Resilience Run this August 10th, commemorating the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. This year will mark the 333rd anniversary of the historic 1680 Pueblo Revolt.

The event will feature a half marathon relay, 5k, and one-mile fun run/walk. Proceeds from the fundraising event run will support the acquisition to IPCC’s permanent collection of the seven foot pink, Tennessee marble sculpture of Popé, the Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo leader who led the Pueblo nations in a united and successful effort to drive the Spanish out of New Mexico and Arizona in 1680.

The sculpture is currently on display in the south rotunda of the Center as part of the 100 Years of State and Federal Policy: The Impact on Pueblo Nations exhibition and was carved by renowned sculptor, Cliff Fragua (Jemez Pueblo).

Race events begin on Saturday August 10, 2013 at 7 a.m. with the half marathon relay followed by a 5-K run at 8 a.m. and then concludes with a one-mile fun run/walk at 9 a.m. The run starts across the street from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, on the old Albuquerque Indian School campus. The route continues north on 12th street and returns on 12th street as well. Chasing3 Race Productions has partnered with the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center to produce the 2013 Resilience Run. Early registration ends July 19th.
