In May of every year, the Navajo Hopi Honor Riders host a four-day ride, covering more than 800 miles, with dozens of Blue and Gold Star families of Native military personnel who were either killed in combat or who are overseas in dangerous wars and witnessed by thousands of community members during this unforgettable event. Many heartfelt receptions and ceremonies honoring the families and individuals are planned. Typically, more than 300 motorcycle riders, many of them Veterans themselves, participate in this annual ride to honor our military personnel, and is the signature event of NHHR.

Safety is the most important factor during the run, impaired riding will not be tolerated. If you are impaired, you will be asked to ‘not ride’ for that day or the duration of the Annual Run. Get plenty of rest during the ride. Water will be provided and some locations will provide food but not guaranteed, so bring your own snacks.
