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.

“’You don’t have to be a runner,’ I say to them. ‘When you’re about to make an important decision about your own life or someone else’s, a decision that might change your life forever, before things escalate, go for a run.’” Dustin Martin, a young Diné (Navajo) runner and educator...
You get up and run every morning as the sun is rising because you run to celebrate life. You run because it is a form of prayer. You're speaking to Mother Earth with your feet.

You're showing them that you're willing to work for that prayer for those blessings. - Shaun Martin, Diné Prayer.
This new film opens in theaters in the US in August.
