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.

"Runners who signed up for the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race would go around and around 164th street in Jamaica, Queens, 5,649 times, roughly 96km each day until they had run 4,898km in the world’s longest certified footrace.

"The race – and extreme running itself – is the subject of Sanjay Rawal’s new film, 3100 Run and Become, which is now available to stream.

"Watching it now – as the world’s major cities including New York are in shutdown – feels jarring, a reminder of the freedoms we have lost: to be outside in bustling streets, where people move with purpose; to run and to breathe without fear. In the film, street life in Queens surrounds the runners as they circle the same block, past the Thomas Edison high school and Joseph Austin playground, again and again."

What a great article in the The Sydney Morning Herald!

"It's a race that goes so long that runners often stop for a haircut along the way. They eat all the ice cream, cookies and chips they can manage yet still lose up to 15 kilograms. And they run laps around a New York city block for almost 5000 kilometres.

"In the world of extreme sports, the "3100" has to be one of the most extreme."
