The best runners in the World - The Tarahumara
The Tarahumara are the greatest runners on this Planet. Over time, as humans have lost their desire and need to run, losing their abilities physically, the Tarahumara have remained conditioned to continue in “Persistent Hunting” for their food. A process that requires the tribe to run after their prey until they basically pass out of exhaustion. I suggest reading more about Persistence hunting and the Tarahumara hunting techniques. Alternatively, if you haven’t already, get yourself a copy of “Born to Run” by Christopher MacDougall as there’s a wonderful section in his book. The link in this post is an incredibly interesting watch.
