Our friend Micah True (Caballo Blanco) said “We are the Messengers”. Micah may no longer be with us, but his simple message of love, and peace and people from all over the world coming to run and experience the beauty of the peoples and the lands of the Sierra Tarahumara will last forever. The seed that Micah planted with the (now named in his honor) Ultra Marathon Caballo Blanco continues to be one of running’s most magical events. It is our goal to do all we can to carry on Micah’s message and introduce more of the lands and bring more athletes together and create more opportunity for these loving communities of the Barrancas del Cobre.
