From Squaw to Auburn A Western States 100 Race story

From Squaw to Auburn - Billy Yang

Great stories don’t need introductions but just need to be heard. Same goes for the ‘From Squaw to Auburn’ film that chronicles filmmaker Billy Yang’s first Western States 100 Race.

On June 27, 2015 mountainrunner and storytelle Billy Yang toed the line at the race of his dreams: the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run from Squaw Valley to Auburn. The film is his personal account of that day and all the people that helped him rally to the finish line. It wasn’t the day he had envisioned in his head in the days, weeks and months leading up to it, but it was still the experience of a lifetime.

Enjoy this inside look of running an ultra and be inspired by Billy Yang’s journey.
