The movie spoiled McDougal's book, Born to Run.
on December 17, 2016
The movie spoiled the book, Born to Run. Run Free was too long and felt like a corporate sell out by those who wrote, directed and produced. Like many ultra races to date, the theme of running free is lost and has turned into over populated, commercialized corporate events with expensive entry fees, goodie bags, t-shirts and giving awards to all pay the entry fee and participate regardless of performance.
Micah True slams Gold Corp. for mining practices in the canyon, who sponsored his event, but wears the event t-shirt throughout the race, a bit of hypocritical. In the book, Micha was concerned over the exploitation of Tarahumara, too bad that's exactly what the movie does.
