Not really new stuff -- there were man vs. horse races in the 19th century, and the man could win over distance -- but the New York Times joins the reaction against high-tech running shoes.

I seem to recall hearing that they still run a man vs. horse race near Prescott, AZ. I think it's 25 miles or so, some in open country and some in the scrubby foothills. Winning species split was said to be near 50-50.
