Seattle: Run Free - The True Story of Caballo Blanco Premiere

  • The Mountaineers Program Center 7700 Sand Point Way NE Seattle, WA, 98115 United States (map)

Run Free - The True Story of Caballo Blanco will premiere in Seattle, WA, on Wednesday, October 7 at 7 p.m. at the Mountainners Program Center, 7700 Sand Point Way NE, in Seattle.

The feature-length documentary is about ultra-running legend Micah True, a Visalia native. Better known as Caballo Blanco – the White Horse – True, was the focal character of Christopher McDougall’s 2009 best-selling book “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen” about the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico.

The one-night-only event is sponsored by the Seattle Running Club and will feature a special appearance by the filmmaker, Sterling Noren, of Seattle, and (hopefully) one of the featured runners from the book and the film, "Barefoot" Ted McDonald, president of Luna Sandals of Seattle, one of the film's sponsors.

Tickets are $12 in advance at www.imathlete.com/events/runfree or $15 at the door the night of the show.
