We are Friends of the Running People

Norawas de Raramuri is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization, started in 2008 by a group of Mas Locos and Micah True. We are friends of the Raramuri, also known as the Tarahumara, the native inhabitants of the Copper Canyons of Mexico. We celebrate their way of life and their culture, which revolves around the joy of running and the importance of sharing with others.

With respect and love, we maintain the great bridge that was created by Micah True, Caballo Blanco, between the Raramuri and runners of good will from all over the world.  We produce the Ultra Caballo Blanco (Copper Canyon Ultramarathon) along with other ongoing projects to support the Raramuri. 


All your donations go directly to the Raramuri of the Copper Canyons. Norawas operates as a 100% volunteer organization. 

When the message we carry is of truth, peace, beauty and love, we will always have the strength to find our way home, on this, our beautiful Mother Earth
— Micah True "El Caballo Blanco"
