Our Kickstarter fundraising campaign has been successfully funded! Now we can share Micah True’s message with the world.Stay tuned to this website and our Facebook page for future updates.
Hola Norawas, Amigos, Friends, Mas Locos worldwide,
Through your generosity, we are on schedule with the production of Run Free!
We are currently working on movie t-shirts and posters. These will be sent out shortly as anticipated. We encourage our supporters, to share the message of Run Free, with your family and friends! www.runfreemovie.com
In 2012 we provided race footage of the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, featuring Micah True, and the Raramuri runners, to Sender Films of Boulder, Colorado, for their production of a Team CLIF bar video, featuring the legendary athlete, honored champion and friend of the Tarahumara families of La Sierra, Scott Jurek.
In a true, organic spirit of Korima (circle of sharing), Sender Films provided interviews and running footage of Scott Jurek. Thank you Sender Films!
Christopher McDougall, the author of Born to Run, has agreed to be interviewed for our movie. We are scheduling this interview to take place soon. Thank you ‘Mc Oso’ for your gift of sharing this inspiring story with the world. Your friendship to Caballo, and belief in our project, is priceless.
In the meantime, we are currently in the final editing stage of the movie. We have received valuable feedback on two previous “rough cut” viewings. We are now working on what we hope to be our final cut. Once final editing is done and the picture is locked, we will complete color correction, titles and graphics, and final audio post production at a video post-production facility, in California.
We are working with a contributor to create a movie premiere in November, and will post details about this special event as soon as they are available.
We can’t thank you enough for your generosity, and united, compassionate spirits. Through all of us, we create the Message of hope, to keep the dreams of Micah True, alive.
” I never envisioned our race growing this big. But, to see a peaceful celebration among all cultures organically continue, is a beautiful thing. When acting out of love , good things happen. I have faith that the circle continues.” Micah True, 3/12
Muchas Gracias, Sterling and Maria
One of the original Mas Locos, Scott Jurek comments on his experience running in Mexico’s Copper Canyons.
Born to Run author Christopher McDougall shares his thoughts about the Tarahumara and the eccentric, gringo expat. known as Caballo Blanco.
Everyone of the original ‘mas locos’ in the book Born to Run had a spirit animal that they were named after. Micah True was ‘Caballo Blanco’- The White Horse. Barefoot Ted is ‘El Mono’ – The Monkey. What is your spirit animal?
Micah True ran for the experience of running itself. Although he won the first ultra marathon that he entered, he was less interested in competitive racing. He preferred to ‘run free’.
Part of Micah True’s legacy in Mexico is that he inspired the Raramuri,(also known as the Running People), to return to their origins of long distance running. By honoring their age old traditions of foot racing, and Rarajipare Ball Racing, he celebrated with the communities of La Sierra, the joy of running free. Indeed, a renaissance of running has taken place in the Copper Canyons and the annual children’s race, La Corrida de Los Caballitos, prepares the next generation of Raramuri runners for the Ultra Marathon. Each year, hundreds of children participate in the 4km race race. Everyone who runs, wins school supplies, racing shirts, race medals and other gifts from world wide donations. Continue reading
