  •   " When a child my mother taught me the legends of our people; taught me of the sun and sky, the moon and stars, the clouds and storms. She also taught me to kneel and pray to Usen for strength, health, wisdom, and protection. We never prayed against any person… We were taught that Usen does not care for the petty quarrels of men." Geronimo [Goyathlay] (1829-1909) Chircahua Apache

  • Team Structure
    • Each leader must participate in a daily talking circle to discuss strategy and moral
    • Everyone is equal, leader or not
    • The teams have the opportunity to re-structure their members at the end of each cycle.
  • What is a cycle?
    • A cycle is the amount of distance we travel in a certain amount of time. We could run on a 6 day cycle, where we walk approximately 30 miles each day for 4 days, then rest two.
    • Day 1: Walk (cycle begins)
    • Day 2: Walk
    • Day 3: Walk
    • Day 4: Walk
    • Day 5: Rest
    • Day 6: Rest (end of cycle)
  • What if a cycle breaks?
    • If we are unable to walk one day because of the weather, or we are held up for an event, we simply pause the cycle. When we’re ready to hit the road again we pick up where we left off.
    • Day 1: Walk (cycle begins)
    • Day 2: Walk
    • Day 3: Rest/Storm (Pause cycle)
    • Day 4: Walk (Resume cycle)
    • Day 5: Walk
