Asaayi Mountain Run

Sat August 15, 2020 Directions
Asaayi Lake Tribal Park

Yaateeh runners! Welcome to the Asaayi Mountain Runs 20K & 10K

Camp Asaayi – Bowl Canyon Recreation Area

Saturday, June 13, 2020– 9:00 a.m.


Located in the heart of the Chuska Mountains, the Asaayi Mountain Run takes place at Camp
Asaayi in the Bowl Canyon Recreation Area.

We are hoping to stage the Asaayi Mountain Run at Camp Asaayi on August 15.  This is
dependent upon the approval of Navajo Parks and the Navajo Nation.  We want a safe race that
protects the health of the people and communities, but we also believe that there could be a way
to do that while still staging a great event.

If the race occurs, it will be a 10K event.  Online registration for the race will be open from
August 1 through August 10.  There will be only 100 total spots available for registration. There
will be no on-site registration and packet pick-up will run from 7:30-8:30 a.m.  The staggered
start will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Registration is $25 for all runners and includes a performance t-
shirt, race bib, poster, professional timing and possible awards.

DIRECTONS – Camp Asaayi is located in Bowl Canyon Recreation Area in the Chuska Mountains.  Access is easiest on the new paved road, just north of Navajo, New Mexico. A good graded dirt road on the north side of the lake, begins off NM Hwy 134 near Crystal, New Mexico.  The start, finish, parking and camping are at Camp Asaayi, not Lake Asaayi (which is about ½ mile away).  Camp Asaayi is just east of the Lake.

From east (if travelling from Shiprock, Newcomb, etc.)  Travel over Narbona Pass from Sheep Springs, heading west.  Travel ½ mile west of Crystal on NM Hwy 134. Turn left (south) at the large Bowl Canyon sign and travel south seven miles on the graded dirt road to Lake Asaayi and Camp Asaayi, which is located at the “Group Campgrounds” on the map below.

From south (Window Rock, Ganado, Gallup, etc.)   Travel 20 miles north from WR to the newly paved road 8000, about three miles north of Navajo, New Mexico.  Head east on route 8000 about eight miles up to road 311. Turn left (north) on 311 and travel three miles to Camp Asaayi, which is located at the “Group Campgrounds” on the map below.

From north (Tsaile, Chinle, Lukachukai, Red Valley, Rock Point, Kayenta)  Head south past Wheatfield to NM Hwy 134 at NHA housing and turn left (east).  Travel four miles on 134 until you see the large Bowl Canyon sign. Turn right (south) and travel eight miles to the Camp. Turn right (south) and head eight miles to Camp Asaayi.
