On Sunday 21st June 2015 - the longest day of the year - five continental teams took part in ‘ASICS Beat the Sun’, a unique relay race around the iconic Mont Blanc.
Each team was made up of three expert and three amateur runners. They had to traverse multiple running environments including alpine, trail, road and vertical races whilst covering 8,350 metres of crippling ascent and descent.
The challenge - to circumnavigate Europe’s highest peak in the time between sunrise and sunset - was captured on camera. The result is a film that follows the inspiring stories of a group of runners as they are pushed to their physical and mental limits to make it to the end.
