For Navajo and Hopi Tribes, running is more than a sport. Racing the Rez, airing Friday, November 6, 2014 at 7 p.m. on WXXI World, moves beyond stereotypes of the past and present as two high school boys' cross country teams--Tuba City and Chinle--compete for the state championship title. Win or lose, what they learn in the course of their seasons will have a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
