Victoriano Churro Ultramarathon


[In 1993] Victoriano Churro, a Tarahumara Indian from northwestern Mexico, won the 100-mile Leadville, Colorado ultramarathon, running over mountainous terrain at elevations up to 12,600 feet. He was 55 years old at the time and, unlike his younger competitors in their Asics and Nikes, ran in a pair of homemade huaraches [sandals] fashioned from recycled truck tires and a few pieces of scrap leather."
