Coach Stephanie talks with Maria Walton about the life of Micah True and of her continuing Micah's work with Tarahumara.
Maria has been working with producer to remember Micah with the documentary Run Free, the true story of Caballo Blanco. www.runfreemovie.com
Micah True had a simple message – Run Free! – and he shared his enthusiasm for running in the beauty of Las Barrancas del Cobre by creating the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon (Ultra Marathon Caballo Blanco). Micah True was the Race Director from 2002 until his death in 2012. Micah was immortalized in the New York Times Best Seller book Born to Run. After Micah's death, his partner, Maria Walton continues Micah's legacy continuing the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon. http://www.ultracb.com/
Maria continues to support Norawas de Rarámuri, We are friends of the Raramuri, also known as the Tarahumara, the native inhabitants of the Copper Canyons of Mexico. We celebrate their way of life and their culture, which revolves around the joy of running and the importance of sharing with others. With respect and love, we maintain the great bridge that was created by Micah True, Caballo Blanco, between the Raramuri and runners of good will from all over the world.
