Video: Life in a Day on the Western States 100 Trail Race

The Western States 100 is one of the premiere ultramarathons in the world, testing the endurance, dedication, and mental toughness of the best trail runners on the planet. In this video, which is actually a feature length documentary about the event, we follow four female runners as they embark on this epic challenge, each hoping for a top 10 finish or even a shot at the title. Along the way, we learn what drives them as we endure every mile of the race alongside these amazing athletes. I know this one is quite long, but its worth watching nonetheless. If you have the time, get comfortable, sit back and enjoy. Chances are you’ll come away inspired and motivated too.
