Farewell Caballo

In loving memory of Micah True "Caballo Blanco"

 

It saddens me to hear this evening that Micah True – “Caballo Blanco” – has been found dead after being missing for almost a week in the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico. Search and rescue along with many ultra-runners participated in the search…..his body was found today.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Caballo on several occasions, and spent over a week with him during my own trip to Mexico to participate in the Copper Canyon Ultramarathon in 2011.

He was a man who truly followed his bliss, and gave everything he had to support the Raramuri “Tarahumara” people and their way of life.

Run free Caballo, we will miss you.
