See below the entire collection of inspirational human interest stories that celebrate the power of running.  


Man With A Hammer – Run Time – 8m 57s
Every endurance athlete fears him. With runners, he usually waits until somewhere between kilometre 30 and 35. Then he strikes. Again and again. Legs turn to lead; the pulse rises. Cramps and stitches set in followed by the feeling of total exhaustion. This is the so-called “The Man with the Hammer”. 


Run to see Carpathian Mountain – 3m 32s

I am a cinematographer, cameraman and a traveller. Together with different travel-shows, I have visited more than 65 countries.  I will not show you again what you have already seen. Here you will not find historical backgrounds and tasting of national cuisines. I want you to see the world through my eyes, eyes of the traveller, who glances up and keeps eyes open, who notices details and nuances, which you miss so often, by eyes of the person who sees beauty and burns with enthusiasm.  So I invite you to make a run to see the world. This journey was to the Carpathian Mountain, that is situated in Ukraine, the heart of Europe.


Running with Helen – 7m 44s
 A short documentary about having multiple sclerosis and going running, Running with Helen is about remembering to keep doing those things that really make you feel good - even when life throws lemons directly in your face. 


Iron again - Tim Don – 5m 34s
“Man With the Halo: Iron Again” is the follow-up to the emotionally charged and universally inspiring story of Tim Don’s epic journey. From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows to the perseverance and the mental and physical will to return, Tim Don proved to us all that being Iron is so much more than crossing a finish line - but he did that too.


Run the line – 10m
Australia’s favourite adventure son is back. Beau Miles humoured us with his amazing story last year running a mile an hour. This time, Beau is out ‘running’, taking his adventurous spirit through Victoria’s old train line.


Aziza – 6m 30s
The call to prayer is a familiar sound in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Five times a day the minaret sounds, and people from all across Moroccan valleys pause to say their prayers. Embedded with a powerful sense of tradition, the people of these villages very much still live ‘the old way’, and many are subsistence farmers who live honest, humble lives. This is no different for Aziza Raji, it’s just that despite the daily tasks that are expected of her, she manages to find time to train to be one of the rising stars of Moroccan ultra-running. 


Mile 19 – 10m
Some people run for exercise and others for competition, but Johnnie Jameson runs to heal. Whether it’s the barista at your coffee shop, the valet parking your car, or the mailman who comes to your door, there are extraordinary people behind every ordinary job. Johnnie is one of them.


Common Ground – 11m
Across the United States, a movement has grown to sell off our public lands. Despite strong public opinion, legislators and lobbyists are working with unprecedented eagerness to transfer public lands to private interests. Without engagement and action, our commons may disappear.


Tim the Running Pastor – 8m 13s
A story about Sverri Steinholm, a Faroese trail running pastor that explores the relationship of his spirituality both through his experiences in the outdoors and in a traditional “church” / community. Sverri is an avid runner — both on the roads and ‘in the fields’ as he says — who uses his time on the trails to work through not only his personal conflicts but the conflicts of others he often is burdened to bear being the local Pastor who must keep everyone’s secrets.


Frosty – 15m 27s
On the surface, Anna Frost looks like a competition-driven elite ultra-runner having won some of the hardest races in her sport. One would probably think the desire to win is what drives Anna to trail run. To her, trail running is a gateway to connection. Connection to nature. Connection to community. And ultimately, connection to the self. The film will get viewers stoked to learn more about the fabled, “Frosty” yet she is about to go through the hardest challenge of her life, Motherhood.


The Movement – 15m
What happens when a diverse handful of rebels across the globe co-opt a sport that was long the dominion of yuppies? The answer is at the heart of THE MOVEMENT, an irreverent, music-driven story about the new revolutions in running. In recent years, underrepresented communities have been transforming the sport of running into something beyond the realms of fitness and competition. Running today is a lifestyle, an identity, a raised fist, and a force to blast through social constructs. In cities from London to Tokyo, misfits, punks, and others far outside the mainstream athlete mould have been gathering into run crews that take to the streets in defiance. Trail running is undergoing its own takeover as women lead the charge to run further and freer than ever before. THE MOVEMENT is a high-energy ride that carries us through the intersection of running and culture today, with a look toward where it’s going tomorrow
