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.

Check out this new summary of our film on FitWild

“’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 Wings of America

Check out the awesome podcast by former Navy Seal Mark Divine from www.SEALFIT.com where Mark and Sanjay discuss the spiritual aspect of elite training.

"But at the end of the day, 3100 miles, it’s not about the physical body. No matter where you do it. It’s gotta be about the heart. It’s gotta be about mental control, and finding joy in what most human beings look at as excruciating pain or mind-numbing boredom.

"And it’s the opposite of that. It’s an experience of bliss, it’s an experience of transcendence, and hopefully takes the participants a step closer to enlightenment."

Thanks so much Mark!

Great review from Runs for Cookies! Thank you Runs for Cookies!

"Friends, I learned that there are runners who put "batsh*t crazy" to shame. They make that level of crazy go way down to the bottom rung of the whole crazy ladder.

"I was invited to watch an advance screening of a documentary about a race that I'd never heard of, and when I read about the race, I legitimately thought that the mileage was a typo. It had to be. Or meant to be an ironic title. Or a joke. It couldn't possibly be a real race!

"I'm talking about the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race.

"After you pick your jaw up off the floor, envision this: A road race where the runners must complete at least 59 miles per day for 52 straight days to finish. The entire race is on a 1/2-mile loop of a block in Queens, NYC. And it's done in the summer heat!

"Is there even a word that describes that level of crazy?!"

🤪🙃

So many glorious and gorgeous shots of ultras running down my feed like @wser @utmbmontblanc @lavaredoultratrail so i thought I would throw this out there. Today was the 14th day of the Self Transcendence 3100 Miler. 95+ degrees. Humid. Saturday in #NYC and 10 souls gutted out 60+ miles each on sidewalk. @kobiultrarunner and Vasu hit 1000 miles today averaging more than 70 miles a day. Just 2100 miles to go. Eeep. If you’re an ultra distance runner in NYC, you’d best come out and check this for yourself. Humbling and elevating at the same time. @3100film @yolandaholder @williamsichel

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 breathing in Father Sky. You're telling them, you're asking them for blessings. You're showing them that you're willing to work for that prayer for those blessings. - Shaun Martin, Diné Prayer (Board Member of Wings of America)

This new film opens in theaters in the US in August.
