New Badwater Movie - The Distance of Truth

It's worth the wait!

The new Badwater movie "The Distance of Truth" by Pageturner Productions, Inc. has been released and is ready for you! See Ferg Hawke, Scott Jurek, David Goggins, Monica Scholz, Dean Karnazes and others in action at the world's toughest foot race. Hear what they have to say about training and competition. These are some of the toughest in ultrarunning. But don't just take my word for it. Watch the trailer and decide for yourself.

Here is a film synopsis from the website:

Under a desert sky, an unlikely challenger fights to stave off one of the greatest ultra runners on the planet. 'The distance of Truth' is a human-interest story, a celebration of nature, and of philosophical examination of motivation that explores the unyielding determination of Canadian runner Ferg Hawke as he competes against the world's best in the harsh but beautiful Death Valley while attempting to master the toughest footrrace on earth, the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon. Follow in the footsteps of those who have wandered into the valley of death to tempt its inhospitable nature - never to return. Journey from the Badwater Basin, lowest point in North America, to Mt. Whitney, highest point in the contiguous United States. Share in the emotional highs and lows of Hawke's four-year-pilgrimage, a quest that ultimately questions the tendency to accept limitation over its alternative...the full realization of human potential.

You run long enough... something's bound to happen.
