3100 Mile Race is ON!
Happy Summer!!! Apologies for the silence the last few months! We've been engrossed in exactly what you all entrusted us to do - making a great film!
We had a rough cut screening of an 84-minute version of the film at Kickstarter Headquarters in Brooklyn 10 days ago. We received really good feedback from the film community and are progressing toward a final version.
The finish line is in sight! Not just for us, but for the brave contestants of this year's 3100. They've endured 90+ degree weather and have less than 3 weeks to go. See their progress here.
And take a look at this article that came out on the race in yesterday's NY Times. It's a fascinating insight into the routine of the Race's first-ever race walker, 59-year old Yolanda Holder of California. Interestingly enough, modern-day ultradistance racing was born out of Pedestrianism - multi-day competitive walks that were held both outdoors in indoors in the 1800s and 1900s.
Hope to have more news for you all in a month or so.
As always ... THANK YOU!
