Mexico Tarahumara Virtual Marathon
Together with the Tarahumara Indigenas, virtual runners will run the most fascinating event of the year.
Run against real Tarahumara Indigenas and compare your performance! A unique experience!
The Tarahumara indigenas live at the largest canyon in the world, the Copper Canyon in north-eastern Mexico. They refer to themselves as Raramuri, those who run faster, a self-designation that is undoubtedly true. Their secluded life forced the people to long marches and runs of up to 170 kilometers through rough canyons - and that in one day. It is even said that there is a record of 700 kilometers in 48 hours.
Together with the non-profit organization "Fundación Tarahumara José A. Llaguno" and "The Home Depot", we support projects of the Tarahumara indigenas in the areas of nutrition, water security and education of children.
