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.

What a way to promote the NYC screenings of @3100film 10/26 on at @villageeastcinema Talk about grassroots! Ashprihanal Aalto popped into NYC yesterday. Who is he? As a 14 time finisher of the Self-Transcendence 3100 mile run (Queens), plus a multiple finisher of the now defunct 700 miler (Wards Island) and multiple winner of the 10-day race (Flushing Meadow Park), he has raced more miles than anyone ever has on NYC streets (53,100 miles); the equivalent of *racing* a marathon a week for 39 years....
...
He was greatly influenced by founder of the @nyrr Ted Corbitt and joined @firstrun, @soswanky, @alacrityamir Arpan de Angelo @estanleydott and I for a spontaneous run in honor of the “Runner-Saint” who pioneered distance running as a working class African-American. Ted ran to work. Ted ran all day each weekend. Ted invented modern course measurement. Ted ran the 1952 Olympic marathon. Ted created the course for the NYC marathon. Ted ran 300 miles at the age of 83 in a six day race. Ted’s accomplishments are endless...
...
But greater than his accomplishments is his legacy. No Ted, no urban running. No Ted, no 3100. So both sides of that legacy joined one another for a 55km run thru 4 boroughs .. no better way to honor Ted than to run the streets of New York....

Straight out of #kurosawa but in 2016 - Seven years earlier, Ajari-san had completed the 1000 Day Quest on Mt Hiei : 10 cycles of 100 days with set mileages for each cycle that varied between 11 miles a day for the first cycle to nearly 60 miles a day for the last cycle. And after the 600th day, a fast of 8 1/2 days with no food no water and no sleep. No one on earth gets more out of their feet than the “Marathon monks”. @3100film #runandbecome at the Village East Cinemas 10/26 on

What it looks like to have run 1,000 miles on a sidewalk in Queens - temps scraping 95 degrees, humidity averaging 80%. Shamita Achenbach Koenig (Austria) with her eyes on the prize. Self Transcendence 3100 Miler, 2016. #runandbecome

"Whether you’re a runner or someone looking to transform your life, inspiration can be found if you have the courage to look within. A film like 3100: Run and Become is the perfect starting point.” - Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota), 1964 Olympic Gold Medalist
