The Ultra Maratón Caballo Blanco is conducted by the Municipality of Urique, Chihuahua, México.
Local time: 4:32 AM
The UMCB has an incredible and storied history, and is recognized as one of the world's most recognized Ultras. Started by Micah True to bring runners from all over the world and introduce them to the Ramamuri (Tarahumara) people and their great culture. The Ultra event brings together endurance athletes from all over the planet to run together with over (what is typically) 600 Raramuri athletes.
This year will mark the first year that a Marathon distance will be added. While the Marathon will allow more athletes who prefer to run this distance over the 50 Mile, it will still be a very challenging event. The course is being finalized and we are most excited. This will surely prove to be one of the most scenic Marathons on the planet.
Both Ultra and Marathon registrations include the races and attendance to the full weekend of cultural events, activities and gatherings.
While a separate event from the Ultra and Marathon, a highlight of the weekend is the UMCB kids race on Saturday (the day before race day) which features 1000 young athletes in short races around the town of Urique.
Stay tuned on Social Media as many more updates for this coming March 2018 event will be forthcoming. Also information about transportation options, accommodations and support and other logistical information will be shared. We all look forward to what is going to be an amazing event!
