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.

Another participant in this year’s 3100:: Featured in @3100film and a two-time finisher of the 3100, Nirbhasa ran his fastest time in 2017 of 48 days+16:47:01. He has run four multi-day races, and has been running competitively for 18 years. He grew up in Dublin and was an honors scholar and particle physicist. He is ranked 23rd out of the fortunate 43 people on the 3100 Mile list. He is the only Irishman to ever finish 3100 miles.
..
He says:..
..
“Often we have an all-or-nothing approach to changing our lifestyle for the better. However, the process of making resolutions should not be a cycle of making targets and then feeling bad because you didn’t achieve them, there should be some joy in the process! In other words, we should be happy at any changes we do make, and take them as as positive signs of our own progress, rather than bemoaning our inability to transform ourselves overnight. If we have that attitude, it is much easier to accept ourselves and keep trying to improve, despite the setbacks.”..

Smarana Puntigam.
Age 48, Vienna Austria.
..
Smarana finished the 3100 7 times in a row in the aughts but then took 7 years off, returning in 2017. Unfortunately he didn’t finish in either 2017 or 2018, though he went the full 52 days.
..
This year he’s back - to capture the glory of those first 7 times, when finishing must have felt as easy as drinking water. Now, he has the perspective of humility and his giant calves (the biggest we’ve ever seen) are going to need his giant heart to get his full being across the finish line.
..
But make no mistake, this man is a legend.
..
Smarana ran his fastest time in the 3100 back in 2007, reaching the goal in 48:04:13:54. He remains the Austrian record-holder. Of course, he is still in search of the perfect race.
