But they also are moving their animals along constantly -- and as part of their nomadic lifestyle learned to master truly extreme long-distance runs.

This year's Canyons Ultramarathon brought together more than 1,000 competitors from around the world -- Russia, Canada, the United States, Ecuador and Spain -- to take on the steep slopes of the Sinforosa range of the Tarahumara mountains in the Sierra Madre Occidental.

With the wail of "Weringa!" which means "Onward" in their language, runners were off. They battled it out in the men's and women's 63-kilometer and 100-kilometer contests from Friday through Sunday.

The results: all four races swept by Raramuri (which means Light of Feet) talent.

Javier Hernandez could be a Hammer within a week

  Javier Hernandez could be a Hammer within a week According to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, Hammers fans could be seeing Javier Hernandez in claret and blue within the next seven days. Javier Hernandez move to West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen “could be done within next seven days” — Kaveh Solhekol (@SkyKaveh) July 18, 2017 The 29-year-old Mexican has been rumoured, as have many other forwards, as a West Ham target this summer but it seems as if the Hammers are finally closing in on a striker. Currently playing for Bayern Leverkusen, he managed 13 goals in all competitions and that caused many teams to chase after his signature this summer. With London rivals Chelsea briefly linked with the ex-Manchester United star, it seems the London Stadium side have beaten them to a deal. It is thought ‘Chicharito’ is demanding around £140,000 a week which is a lot more than the highest earners at the club, so David Sullivan is reportedly in discussions with the Mexicans agent today to finalise personal terms.

The course was not some manicured grass pitch; the trail -- which follows mountain ridges -- is clotted with mud, rocks and even takes runners over a traditional woven suspension bridge.

While some competitors were decked out in high-tech gear to absorb sweat or avoid friction, local champions stuck mostly to their traditional gear.

It famously includes sandals hand-carved out of old car tires and their centuries-old handwoven shirts, petticoats and scarves, for women, and a slightly lighter outfit for their men.

Because since we don't have cars, we walk or run everywhere," said Miguel Lara, 27, who won the 100-kilometer sprint in nine hours and 46 minutes. His record is eight hours and 47 minutes.

The locals are attached to tradition, but clearly are not afraid of innovation.

At some point in the past, obviously, someone shifted from sandals made of natural materials for running, to recycled tire tread sandals with a light strap.

Perhaps Lara's shoe sponsorship contract could go to Michelin.

Lizzie Deignan finishes second in La Course .
British national champion Lizzie Deignan finished second on the Col d'Izoard as Holland's Annemiek van Vleuten won La Course by Le Tour on Thursday.
