Below are two fascinating videos about the Rarámuri of northern Mexico. This indigenous group is known around the world for their distance running ability. The impressiveness of their running is in many ways similar to the impressiveness of these Yemen jumpers. You won’t find any fancy training aids or supplements. What you will find however are a group of consistent and obviously hard working runners.
As stated within the first video below:
“The Rarámuri never train, stretch, or warm-up before races. They wear homemade sandals made out of tire tread, strapped to their feet with leather, and they’re capable of running distances that would make an average marathon runner fall to their knees.”
I’m fascinated by this story and I believe much can be learned by observing this group of people. Each video is slightly over 9 minutes but definitely worth a look when time permits.
Thanks to Yonas for passing them along.
