Long distance running is the most defining characteristic of the human race. Our ability to run at moderate speeds for long distances is uniquely human.
A human being can outrun every animal over a marathon. It is therefore very interesting to think about what exactly it is that inspires people to run and what inspires the greatest distance runners to run at the speed they do. Transcend is a film featuring and documenting the world’s greatest marathon runners.
This trailer features Olympic Gold Medalists, Haile Gebrselassie (2xGold), Kenenisa Bekele (3xGold), Tirunesh Dibaba (3xGold), Tiki Gelana (1xGold) and 2012 Boston Marathon Champion Wesley Korir.
