Born to Run is excited to announce that Luis Escobar will be in our Seattle store in late July to present "Running with Tarahumara", a 60-minute photographic essay that includes rare images of the beautiful Tarahumara people from Mexico's Copper Canyon.

This is going to be an event you do not want to miss!  Here's all the details:

Where: Born to Run, 213 Yale Ave N., Seattle (free parking available on street, additional parking across the street at REI)

What: 10 am- Group run with Luis Escobar

           11 am- Brunch

           11:30 AM- Running with Tarahumara Presentation (60 minutes)

Cost:  $20 per person- part of the cost of your ticket is a donation to, the non-profit organization founded by Micah True to support the Tarahumara running culture.  Tickets will be available soon at Born to Run stores and will be limited to 50 people, so stay tuned for more info. soon!  We'll likely track early interest with a Facebook event page as well.

Free Food & Swag:  We'll offer a light brunch back at the store after the group run, and one lucky person will win a free pair of Luna Sandals too.  Just in time for summer!

This is your chance to not only view some amazing photographs by Luis Escobar, but to also learn more about the Tarahumara people.  Why they run.  How they run.  And what we can learn from the Running People as modern American runners.
