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.

There are few people I have met along my journeys who are as inspiring as Dustin Martin (@quinnthenavajo), the executive director of Wings of America (@wings_of_america). For over 30 years this organization has been helping to rejuvenate and inspire running traditions across Indian Country. Running isn’t just fitness, it is a way of life – at least it was for tens of thousands of years until colonization. Colonization ruined humanity in so many ways but it’s effects are infinitely more pronounced here in Indian country where rates of obesity and suicide have skyrocketed. Wings of America isn’t simply trying to create a generation of world-class runners, it is re-introducing Running as a pathway to happiness for Native kids. And my involvement with Wings (as a non Native) has help me reacquaint myself with running – not as something competitive or simply for health – but as a pathway to happiness too. @3100film @fitwild @spartan @brooksrunning

Another great running day back in the bay area. It always surprises me how much terrain there is around big cities for epic, beautiful, disappearing acts into nature. And how few of us actually utilize those opportunities. I am definitely guilty. It seems that living in a big city one just gets sucked into the great flow of nothingness. It’s a lot easier to Netflix and chill than it is to take a step outside or take a drive 20 minutes into a new environment. In 2018, I am pledging as much as possible to take advantage of every opportunity to get outside and just run. Who’s with me??

It is so rare these days to have perfect snowshoeing conditions in New York City. Usually there is snow for a day and then it melts away. Or it is way too icy or slushy. But the #bombcyclone from a couple days back laid down 2 to 3 solid feet of powder but wind swept and packed. Local lakes and rivers also froze over. A photographer friend of mine who prefers to be unnamed joined me at the Rockefeller preserve this morning for a quick run. There was nobody around for the first hour of our trek and we quickly recognized that the conditions were fantastic for making our own trails. Toward the end we got a little brave, maybe dumb, and crossed the lake. We realized that the top 6 inches of the lake were slushy but that there was a solid layer of ice below. So after poking through in our first couple of steps we gingerly walked across the ice. We spent the rest of our morning barreling down hills trying to make ourselves look cooler than we actually were 🙂 #dorksonice

It’s great to be back in Albuquerque for a couple of days. In March 2015 we took a trip down here to meet a young man named Dustin Martin (@quinnthenavajo), then the program director of Wings of America (@wings_of_america), an incredible organization dedicated to promoting the cultural aspects of and traditional connection between running and native youth. Dustin took us to the Navajo reservation where we met Shaun Martin the director of the Canyon de Chelsey ultramarathon and ultimately one of the main characters in our film. Nearly 3 years later, Dustin is now executive director and this weekend is hosting a team of elite high school Native cross country runners preparing to run in nationals in February. And we are doing a special work in progress screening of our film to these young men and women, the future of Native running.

"But perhaps Flanagan’s bigger accomplishment lies in nurturing and promoting the rising talent around her, a rare quality in the cutthroat world of elite sports. Every single one of her training partners — 11 women in total — has made it to the Olympics while training with her, an extraordinary feat. Call it the Shalane Effect:"
