Run Oaxaca Run

 with

Aire Libre & Sombra Mezcal

February 25 to March 3, 2019

 

I'm really excited to pair up with Aire Libre to return to one of my favorite places in the world. My travels have taken me through Oaxaca on multiple occasions over the years. The sierras of Southern Mexico boast cultural wealth, amazing trails, mezcal, pulque and generous hospitality. Our agenda will include visits to cultural heritage sites, long and short trail runs, meditation and yoga sessions and a visit to our favorite mezcal distillery - the Sombra palenque. 

Who is Aire Libre? I met Mau, Eme & Dani when I was finishing up TransCon in 2018. They are three rad Mexicans that embody enthusiasm and stoke for running, mindfulness and their country. Check them out HERE .

Who is Sombra Mezcal? Sombra was started by a couple of buddies of mine - Richard Betts and Charles Bieler -  invited me to join them in Oaxaca as they were getting the business off the ground several years ago. The company has grown, changed palenques and is investing heavily into the local community ensuring sustainability in world that is rapidly demanding it. Check them out HERE.
