These were some of the Tarahumara men who raced our American runners in a 50 mile race . I am posting a couple of more photos . The guys hiked 40 miles from Botopilas to Urique in one day ! The race was started in the town of Urique.
In 2006 , I made a trip to the Copper Canyon with my son Luis a ultra runner . He and six other runners raced 50 miles with the natives of this canyon . This race is now fetured in a Best Selling Book " Born to Run" by Mc Dougal. More on the details later as I am now going to hike . I just wanted to post a couple of photos
