Foot race to honor Spino

WARM SPRINGS – A CTUIR member’s efforts on another reservation are being celebrated this year.

Azar Spino started the annual Super Man – Wonder Woman Endurance Foot Race in Warm Springs, which will occur June 27.

Austin Green, the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs’ Recreation Director, said the
event will honor Spino this year, who started it in 2018.

“We are honoring our original race director Azar Spino, who initiated this event in 2018 and brought a positive, well-planned event to the community,” he said. “Azar had no prior race event experience, yet he built it into a respectable event for those here during Pi-ume-sha Treaty Days

Despite the cancellation of Warm Springs’ Treaty Days, the outdoor races — including a 3.9 mile foot race and 9.4 mile bike race — is still on, Green said.
