3100: Run and Become

What if the simple act of running could lead to profound enlightenment? 3100: Run and Become follows an unassuming Finnish paperboy in his attempt to complete the Self-Transcendence 3100 Miler – the world’s longest race – where he must run at least 60 miles per day for 52 days around a 1⁄2 mile sidewalk loop in New York City. His quest takes viewers not only to the heart of this astonishing event but around the globe to the ancient cultures that have held running sacred for millennia.

This feature length documentary is set to premiere in 2018. Visit the film’s site for more information.

The trailer will be released next year too, but in the meantime, here’s the teaser made for our successful Kickstarter campaign.

In the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race, every minute spent running takes you closer to the goal. There are no days off. In fact, runners try to get all the needful done on the course itself (within limits). Here Vasu Duzhiy from Russia gets a quick dental examination to determine if he needs to go to a clinic to solve a nagging tooth ache. After this 5 minute look-see, Vasu was given a clean bill of health and sent back onto the course.

Patti Catalano Dillon was the first American woman to break 2:30 in the marathon (NYC, 1980). She hailed from the Mi’kmaq Nation in Nova Scotia but was born and raised in Massachusetts. She was Nike’s first female sponsored athlete and a pioneer of the movement to pay distance runners. Prior to the efforts of her, Bill Rodgers and others, most distance runners were left to collect unused fruit and yogurt from aid stations after races to feed themselves the following week. Patti is also a board member of @wings_of_america Now in her 60s, she coaches and speaks to youth groups. Follow her @pattispeaks227

The Kalahari is a vast, extremely remote land. You’re looking at one of the most busy, traveled thoroughfares in the entire region. One can only expect to see another vehicle every 48 hours. On a side note, using the initial proceeds from the film release, we bought our Bushmen friends a used 4x4 so that they can crisscross the Kalahari and register Bushmen to vote in the 2019 elections in Botswana. They’re hopeful that they’ll now be able to have some influence in the Parliament. 🤞🏽... 📷 :: @forestwoodward

Portrait of innocence in the Kalahari. Why, you might ask, are these indigenous kids wearing humanitarian aid hand-me-downs? Oblivious to the oppression of the government, even these tiny souls face arrest if they’re seen in traditional Bushman garb, as do Bushmen of all ages living in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. This is a concerted effort by the government of Botswana to strip the Bushmen of their cultural identity and remove them from their mineral rich land. @survivalinternational 📷 @forestwoodward
