Run Free Documentary Tells the Story of Caballo Blanco Like You've Never heard it Before

Most minimalist and barefoot runners have heard stories of the mysterious Micah True, better known by his handle Caballo Blanco (Whte Horse). Now, a new documentary gives a unique inside perspective on his legendary life and the world he influenced.

Micah was an ultra-runner from Boulder, Colorado. After a colorful past as a boxer and a drifter, he spent the latter part of his life living and running with the Tarahumara Indians of Northern Mexico. He created a unique 50-mile foot race to help the Tarahumara Indians preserve their running culture and to give Western runners a chance to meet them on their own turf. The race was made famous in the 2009 best-selling book Born to Run by Christopher McDougall.
