41,709 views 1 month ago
In 1974 Gordy Ainsleigh competed against the horses in a 100 Mile trail ride through the Sierra Nevada mountains... on foot. In true pioneering spirit he wanted to achieve something that others thought impossible. This single event led to the birth of one of the most famous 100 mile footraces in the world, The Western States 100.




40 years on and Ultra-Distance Trail running has become a global sport complete with professional teams and athletes, yet it has managed to maintain that original pioneering spirit. Every weekend thousands of people toe the line ready to explore their limits, in body and mind.




"The Original" recounts Gordy Ainsleigh's original run and explores of the growth of Ultra-Distance trail running.

"The Oddity" & "Holy"
