The Tarahumara – A Hidden Tribe of Superathletes Born to Run
Someone sent me this video about a tribe called the Tarahumara who are known to have run for hundreds of miles. The video discusses the science behind running long distances, the theories behind running with shoes and this tribe who are known to run for great distances, with a minimal shoe or sandal or barefoot.
The barefoot fad is alive and well with groups such as the Barefoot Runners Society who see this as the future of running. On the other hand, the running world is still trying to figure out which products would work best for runners, as we move away from the Vibram 5 fingers concept. Barefoot Runners Society members do not believe that running in the Vibram 5 fingers is running barefoot; they believe barefoot is barefoot period.
