All Nations Run September 27 at Shingle Springs Rancheria
08/27/2014 11:16AM ● Published by Brenna McGowan
Entry fees are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Entry includes a t-shirt, medal and BBQ lunch featuring Olympian Billy Mills. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. The race starts at 10 a.m.
This year, Billy Mills celebrates the 50th Anniversary of his historic gold medal win at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. To this day, he is the only person in the western hemisphere to win gold in the 10,000 meters. Mills is a member of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Tribe and grew up on the impoverished Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. He lost his mother when he was only eight, and his father just a few years later. Running gave Billy an escape and a dream. He’ll tell his inspirational story at the BBQ after the run.
