I recently had the opportunity to check out two great running movies. Here is a quick review of each, but I encourage you to check out both of them on your own!
Western Time (see below)
This short film by Billy Yang features the story of Sally McRae at this year’s Western States. The movie is less than half an hour. It gives you some great shots of Western States, and it has some nice (and heartbreaking) background on Sally. For more on her story, click here. And here.
Transcend is the story of Wesley Korir. The movie depicts his rise to running greatness. It then follows along as he tries to win a seat in the Kenyan parliament. The movie includes great clips featuring Haile Gebrselassie, Ryan Hall and others. The movie is approximately one hour and twenty minutes. It is available for purchase or you can rent it on iTunes ($3.99 for SD or $4.99 for HD). I have included the trailer below.
