Run! Super-Athletes of the Sierra-Madre

Penn Museum

  • Saturday March 31st 2012 at 12:00am to Sunday September 30th 2012 at 12:00am

Considered to be the world’s greatest long-distance runners, the Tarahumara people live within the dramatic canyons of the Sierra Madre in Chihuahua, Mexico. Competing on mountainous terrain in daylong races comprising up to 100 miles, the Tarahumara people have maintained the strength, stamina, and isolation that has ensured their survival through the centuries.

The exhibition features a documentary by Sterling Noren and Noren Films.

You can experience the races for yourself through the vibrant and colorful photography of Texas-born photographer and journalist Diana Molina, who has documented the Sierra Madre and its people for more than a decade.
