The Race Continues on March 2, 2014!
Formerly known internationally as the Copper Canyon Ultramarathon and of Born to Run fame. In memory of Micah True "Caballo Blanco," the race has returned to the name by which it was known in the Canyons, "Ultramaraton Caballo Blanco."
The Ultra Caballo Blanco is directed by Mas Locos: ultrarunner Maria Walton, and by ultrarunner/director Josue Stephens, founder of the Fuego y Agua Ultras in Nicaragua.
In honoring all former traditions of this 50-mile foot race, both cash prizes and food vales (vouchers), are awarded to the top finishers.
Runners completing each loop, receive vouchers which provides maize, beans, rice, flour and non-GMO seed corn for their families. This reward ensures nutritional sustenance to both the physical and cultural survival of the Raramuri people.
The celebration also includes the "Corrida de Los Caballitos" a run for the children of the Canyons, awarding to everyone, finisher medals and shirts.
