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.

Such a great article from last fall! It features one of our main characters - Shaun Martin.

"Running is woven into Navajo culture. Their running tradition goes back more than 1,000 years, to the time when they wended their way south from the Northwest Territories to the high desert and buttes of the Four Corners. When a girl undergoes a puberty ceremony, the kinaalda, she sleeps on the dirt floor of a traditional Hogan, which represents a mother’s womb. When the rays of the sun strike the east-facing door, the girl must take a long run."

Great news (for me at least!!). The film I’ve been working on for the last 4 years @3100film is going to premiere in #Sedona at the @illuminatefilmfestival on June 1st. We will launch theatrically in August starting in the southwest. The film follows a paperboy from Finland as he tries to complete the world’s longest race - the Self Transcendence 3,100 Miler - a record 14th time. His journey intersects those of a champion #Navajo runner (pictured), a San Bushman hunter and a Japanese Monk. Can one pray through one’s feet? through one’s breath? Find out!

A week ago we were running for #BearsEars. It was an epic multi-pronged journey from across the Southwest, culminating with a deep prayer circle on sacred #Ute land at 🐻 👂. Dozens of runners from #Navajo, #Hopi, #Pueblo, #Zuni, #Ute tribes ran hundreds of miles in prayer to reconnect with their ancestral homeland. #sacredstridesforhealing.

People run for many different reasons but to me the most inspirational runners are those who run for their people. What does that mean? Bear with me for a moment – when someone runs with love or selfless intensity, I think that the vibration spreads much further than that individual’s own physical presence. Take for example this amazing Hopi woman @waubun_anungkwe who was taking part in the @bears.ears.prayer.run.alliance relay run to Bears Ears last week. What makes someone a runner? Do they have to look like a runner - do they have to dress like a runner - or do they have to have fast splits? No – someone is a runner if they are using the activity to transform themselves or their people. I can only imagine what was in this woman’s heart and mind as she ran on the land where her people have lived for 10,000 years, with a medicine staff in hand that held the prayers of all those who could not join the run, as she ran toward the sacred Bears Ears National Monument, which is threatened by the fracking industry.... .

The 5 day @bears.ears.prayer.run.alliance ended yesterday with a large gathering at the sacred sites of Bears Ears National Monument. As many of you know, a number of tribes lobbied the federal government for years to designate this area as protected land, and in late 2016 under the antiquities act President Obama designated it as a national Monument. Now, unconstitutionally, President Trump is trying to remove the majority of this land from designation, opening it up to endless mining and fracking. But this area was the home to tens of thousands of native Americans who then migrated to other parts of the west and southwest. Bears Ears was a hotbed of civilization and culture and spirituality. The walls and earth tell the story of 10,000 years. Here, Navajo runner @iamjoneses prayerfully contemplates the reasons he is making this journey - just a few days before we reached our final destination..
