Running the Edge: The Colorado Trail – trailer

Family man and ultrarunner, Scott Jaime, is preparing for the most difficult challenge of his life. His goal is to run the entire 486-mile Colorado Trail, across and over the rugged alpine terrain of the Rocky Mountains, to set a new FKT (fastest known time). The actual reward, however, is far greater.

The physical requirements of the Colorado Trail are daunting. Scott must run at an average elevation of 10,300’ while averaging 60 miles and 22,000’ of elevation change per day for 8+ days on very little sleep through the toughest mountain range in the United States. There are low points – an upset stomach, a wrong turn, a lightning storm – but Scott’s mental performance is truly remarkable. He never falters, never complains and instead buckles down and presses on.

Running the Edge documents not only Scott’s adventure in a beautiful way, but it also shows the high and lows of such an epic adventure. Read more about the movie on its website.
