ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — An ultra-marathon that honors the running traditions of a Mexican tribe will go on next year, even though its founder died last month in southwestern New Mexico.
Ultra-runner Micah True’s body was found March 31 after he failed to return from a routine run. His agent, Scott Leese, says a foundation and memorial fund have been created to honor the 58-year-old.
Leese says the Caballo Blanco Foundation will focus on True’s support for the indigenous Tarahumara of Mexico, their running traditions and the annual 50-mile-plus ultra-marathon through Copper Canyon. Nicknamed Caballo Blanco, True started the race in 2003 as a way to highlight the Tarahumara’s extreme running prowess.
Leese says the foundation will organize and fund the 2013 race.
Officials have yet to determine a cause of True’s death.
Authorities say there were no obvious signs of trauma.
