Run Free is an award-winning documentary about a simple man with an authentic voice and a big dream. Micah True, or Caballo Blanco (The White Horse), was an ultra-runner from Boulder, CO who lived and ran with the Tarahumara (or Raramuri Running People) in Mexico s Copper Canyon. His lasting dream was the creation of the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, which was featured in the best-selling book Born to Run A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes and the Greatest Race the World has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall. Our film presents the true story of Caballo Blanco and his legacy of running with the Tarahumara.
To say that Micah True ran away from an elusive individual history is literally true, and the place he ran to provided him with kindred spirits for whom running has been a way of life for generations the Tarahumara, or Rarámuri. Run Free, The True Story of Caballo Blanco is a feature-length documentary directed by Sterling Noren that tells the story of Micah True and his great achievement of creating an ultra-marathon (a race surpassing 26 miles) deep in the Copper Canyon. McDougall wrote the best-seller, Born to Run A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen. Noren's documentary dovetails nicely with McDougall s work and gives viewers a chance to get it straight from the Horse s mouth (pun intended). --Anchorage Press
Based on Caballo Blanco, a recluse who gave up his Western lifestyle and decided to live a simple lifestyle among a native tribe in the SW US. The story has been told in the book Born to Run but the documentary is so much better than the book. Providing interviews with Caballo Blanco, the race he founded, how it progressed over the years, the story of his life and the people he inspired, and ultimately his recent death. The documentary does this man and his legacy justice. As an ultrarunner I very much enjoyed the film but the story is touching and non-runners should be able to gleam from it a sense of awe and inspiration. --Amazon.com Customer Review
This is a very well done and incredible tribute to a big inspiration to the running community in my opinion. There are few documentaries that keep you pulled in. This movie and the book Born to Run go so very well together. --Vimeo OnDemand Customer Review
