When I first learned about Tarahumara, I thought, wait a minute, they do not use special equipment, they are not damaged, they run from an early age until they are about 80 – so what makes them so special? They remember that running is a knowledge. The rest of us have made it a commodity, a product, but it is a physical knowledge.

It’s been a little over a year since Caballo Blanco passed away. Even if you have no interest in the topic of running, I would still encourage you to click on the image above to be taken to the work of photo journalist Luca Kleve-Ruud who made a beautiful short video last year about Caballo Blanco and the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon which is often referred to as the greatest race the world has never seen. (Note: If you’re wondering why I’m making you go to another page to see the video, Luca Kleve-Ruud set restrictions on it so that it can’t be embedded elsewhere. I respect that.)
