New York Memorial Run for Caballo Blanco
New York State runners were eagerly awaiting Saturday, April 21, to meet Caballo Blanco, run with him and hear his presentation on the Raramuri and the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon. After they heard of his disappearance, organizers Christy Cuomo and Dean Leggiero from Westchester Road Runner decided to transform the event into a memorial for their lost friend.
So last Saturday became a day of remembrance, friendship and free running. Under a beautiful sun, around 20 runners met at the Phelps Memorial Auditorium and went for a run on the surrounding trails, then gathered for a projection of a previous talk given in 2010 by Micah and the short movies by Flint and Olaf, filmed in the canyons only 8 weeks ago.
Special thanks to Saucony, who was present with shoe trials for the runners.
