In 1993 CE, the victor was the Tarahumaran Victoriano Churro, aged 55 years. He covered the 160 km distance in 20 h, 3 min and 33 s, at a speed averaging more than 8 km/h, and he chopped 25 min from the previous Leadville record, running the second half of the race only 20 min slower than the ﬁrst. Although offered Rockport running shoes, Churro chose to run in some huaraches, sandals that he had improvised from old tyres and scrap leather, and during the race he ate only a little ground corn from a sack slung around his neck.
The more wealthy members of the group had greater leisure, and were thus able to develop prowess in a number of sports. They also had the power to command other members of the community to engage in public works such as the construction of funeral mounds for their leaders. Any surplus of agricultural production was preserved in salt and could be traded with neighbouring groups; this provided the wealthier members of society with access to imported luxury goods. Finally, in many neolithic settlements archaeological evidence of fortiﬁcations and weapon-damaged bones points to increased conﬂict between neighbouring groups.
The children of the community are taught to run almost as soon as they can walk (Fontana 1979). There is no evidence that the Tarahumara have an unusual genetic endowment, nor indeed do they follow any “wise” pattern of preparation before engaging in a long-distance competitive run. Many smoke until the night before an event, and engage in the ritual drinking of tesg€ uino. Their unusual endurance seems rather a consequence of persistent daily physical activity and an acceptance of the social and religious importance of running to the community.
