Micah True was always on the go. A world-class ultra runner, regularly tackling distances of more than 26.2 miles, True is the subject of the feature-length documentary Run Free: The True Story of Caballo Blanco. Filmed largely during the days leading up to the 2012 Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, a 50-mile race that he founded, the movie portrays True not only as a legendary athlete but also as a friend to the Tarahumara people of northern Mexico. Perhaps fittingly, the long-distance daredevil passed away the same year during a daily run. Proceeds from the screening benefit the Howard Center Safe Recovery support and education program.
