Mission Statement

By using locally owned businesses we hope to help boost the local economy and promote sustainability in our event locations. All Runners and Volunteers are encouraged to participate in our extracurricular events, such as reforestation and clean water projects, trash-cleanups, school supply donations and our Free Caballitos Kids Run (in the Copper Canyons). These organized efforts promote local awareness of our planet as a natural resource that must be preserved and maintained.


Fuego y Agua gives back to the communities in a way that inspires me. Volcano Maderas and Volcan Conception were two of the biggest toughest climbs I have ever raced. Fuego y Agua challenged me in a way few races ever have.

Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua 

**The Calzado Kids Run project has been retired, Fuego y Agua is refocusing its efforts on Isla de Ometepe toward a Reforestation and Clean Water Project

Portions of race entry costs and donations are used to host the Calzado Kids Run, a children’s race for local islanders. This event promotes running, fitness, healthy eating and awareness of the island as an endangered environment that must be cared for. All participants of Calzado Kids Run receive a bag of school supplies donated by supporters and participants of Fuego y Agua.

Our vision with Calzado Kids Run is to promote running, fitness, healthy eating and awareness of the island as an endangered environment that must be cared for. 

Calzado Kids Run: Through The Years

  • Calzado 2008: 100 children, 110 pairs of shoes donated
  • Calzado 2009: 350 children, 300 pairs of shoes donated
  • Calzado 2012: 400+ children, over 400 pairs of shoes donated
  • Calzado 2013: 550 children, over 600 pairs donated
  • Calzado 2014: 450 children, over a ton of school supplies donated

Copper Canyon, Mexico 

Fuego y Agua Events works hand in hand with Norawas de Raramuri to continue the vision started by Micah True (Caballo Blanco. His mission was to revive and support the culture of running within the Raramuri (Tarahumara) tribe of the Copper Canyons in Mexico. 

Norawas de Raramuri is the nonprofit started by Micah True and a group of Mas Locos (runners who have completed the Ultra Caballo Blanco race) to support the Raramuri way of life. 

The Ultra Caballo Blanco is a 50 mile run in the Copper Canyons of Mexico, it has become a running festival for the Raramuri and many others who come from all over the world to participate. Since it's inception, the Raramuri have restored their running culture and there are many other races and traditional running competitions now taking place yearly. For this race, all Raramuri (Tarahumara) Runners receive vouchers which provides maize, beans, rice, flour and non-GMO seed corn for their families. This reward ensures nutritional sustenance to both the physical and cultural survival of the Raramuri people.

With runners bringing family and children, over 1000 Raramuri come down to the town of Urique for the weekend of the race. Blankets and food are given to all Raramuri runners and their families who come down for the race. 

Corrida de los Caballitos

The Corrida de Los Caballitos (Run of the Little Horses), started in memory of Micah True to encourage the young ones to follow in the running footsteps of their elders. 

All children who participate will receive a shirt and medal donated by Marathon Kids, and a bag of school supplies donated by our supporters and Mas Locos. Everyone is encourage to run with the children and participate in this beautiful event!

We can use your help collecting School Supplies! Please Contact Us to let us know how you can help.

The stunning scenery and relaxed, paradisiacal atmosphere of Ometepe belies, however, the challenging course that race director, Josue Stephens, has laid out to test thoroughly the endurance and will power of all entrants. The course takes runners on a grand tour of the island, confronting runners with dramatic changes in climate and elevation, from tropical beaches and jungles to dry tropics and cloud forests.
