The film “Pies Ligeros” narrates a story of two of Mexico’s most elite long-distance runners that nowadays have been forgotten without any glory. The life of Raramuri runners: Victoriano Churo and Cirildo Chacarito reached its apogee during 1990’s when they obtained national and international recognition for their endurance in long-distance running. However, lack of support over the years has prevented these two brilliant starts from continuing to shine and compete in the ultra-marathon arena. Today their linage has the task of re-vindicating their place as the most enduring runners in this world.
