Foundation started to keep Micah True’s Copper Canyon Ultra race alive

Micah True, aka Caballo Blanco

The Associated Press is reporting that a foundation has been created to keep the Copper Canyon ultramarathon alive. The 50+ mile race was started in 2003 by Micah True, the ultra-runner also known as Caballo Blanco who started the event in Mexico. True, 58, was found dead in New Mexico earlier this month.

He became widely known in running circles as one of the central figures in the best-selling book “Born to Run,” which told the story of the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico and their members’ penchant for healthy living and long-distance running.
