Most recently mountain runner Karl Egloff set a new FKT on Aconcagua in the Andes last February and broke Kilian Jornet’s record of merely two months earlier. Now they meet for the first time in Chamonix to run together.

Nolan’s 14 is also known as the Mount Everest of Ultrarunning. That pretty much says enough. But if it doesn’t, there’s a film made to prove it. Nolan’s 14 is a 100 mile route through the heart of the Colorado Rockies that traverses 14 14,000 foot peaks, hence the name. Only a handful of people have ever completed it within the 60 hour cutoff time. It is not a race though. Anyone may climb the Nolan’s 14 route at any time of year, and these records will be recognized. The object is to climb as many 14ers as you can, traveling on foot, within the 60 hours time limit. You may complete the summits in any order and may use any route you want (on foot) between summits. Intrigued? Watch the trailer and then move on the full film where one dollar from each download is contributed to charity (Paradox Sports). Ultra running legend Blake Wood and some of today’s contemporary elite mountain ultra runners tell the story of this fabled line in 47 minutes.
Travailen follows Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel on their attempt of the Drakensberg Grand Traverse (DGT). The DGT is an unmarked trail which crosses the Drakenberg mountain range in South Africa. Unmarked, which means there is no real course. The total run covers around 220k of difficult and heavy terrain. Enjoy and be inspired.

In the High Country is an impressionistic mountain running film: a visual essay about a life in the mountains. It looks at running from a new perspective, both visually and in the style of running. This kind of movement blurs the lines between running and climbing, between human and mountain.
