Keeping Copper Canyon Alive


According to the Washington Post, Micah True’s ultra-marathon will be held in 2013, even though founder True passed in late March.

2013 will mark the 10-year anniversary of the Copper Canyon ultra-marathon, a race started by True to celebrate and support the Tarahumara people of Mexico.

The ultra-marathon will be organized and funded by the Caballo Blanco Foundation, a foundation named after True’s nickname, Caballo Blanco, a name that translates to “white horse”.

True’s death has pushed many of his fans to look back on his life and reflect just what he stood for, and understand his appreciation for the athletically talented Tarahumara. Many have taken part in memorial runs, such as this one in Boulder, and advocating for donations to the Caballo Blanco Foundation.
