Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon Today

Today, in remote canyons in Mexico, the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon is taking place.  Native Tarahumara are running with outsiders to win cash and corn.

Here is a nice photo slide show with music from Barefoot Ted's web page (from 2007 race):

The race director, Caballo Blanco, has his own web site.  Good information about the area and the race is available on his site.  This whole race was made popular by the best selling book by Christopher McDougall "Born to Run."  Awesome book.
