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.

Massive props to 61 year old @yolandaholder pictured here finishing the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race in 2017. At the “Six Days in the Dome” 6-day race in Milwaukee this August, she split 100 miles in 23:52:11, broke a world and US age group record and became the first African American woman (and second African American) to achieve a Centurion (walking 100 miles in 24 hrs).
..
Folks may not know but the earliest champion American ultra runners were African American. In the late 1800s “pedestrianisms” swept the imagination of the nation. In these events, participants raced to see who could log the most miles in six days, usually around an indoor track. The largest were in Madison Square Gardens and were the first sporting events that could make athletes rich beyond belief (lots of betting and thus a large purse).
..
In 1880, Haitian immigrant Frank Hart took home a $21,000 purse (also by virtue of $3400 he bet on himself), announcing before the race “I’ll break those white fellows’ hearts!”.
..
And he did! This was all just 12 years after the 14th Amendment. But Hart’s fame was short lived as pedestrianisms were overtaken by baseball as the national pastime. In fact, Hart was left to play in the segregated Negro leagues to earn a living. ..
..
Oh - he did 565 miles in 6 days. Back to Yolanda! She did 413 miles breaking an age group record set by Amy Howard 100 years ago!! Way to go Yolanda!! 📷 @srichinmoyultraphoto

It’s been exactly one year since the theatrical release of 3100 Run and Become. Trying to make movies about sacred topics is never easy. Trying to motivate people to see them is even harder. But efforts of service to the Real, to the Truth and to the Creator however humble unfold as the universe wishes. And signs are always there for those who notice.
..
Our film launched as part of the 30th Anniversary of @wings_of_america and they gathered a pantheon of the spiritual greats for our opening including Oren Lyons(Onondaga Nation) and Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo) and Running legends like Billy Mills (Lakota, gold medalist), Patti Dillon (former world record holder) and Henry Rono (another former record holder).
..
There have been so many other signs along our journey as well - and we are learning to measure success not by box office, downloads, or streaming contacts (@netflix and @hulu declined us). But the spirit we tried our best to capture will outlive all those metrics. We hope to inspire the human heart and if we have done so even once, that’s the best thing we could ever achieve. .
..
Thank you to all who have supported and all who continue to do so. With love and tremendous gratitude.
