Editorial Reviews

Racing Against the Clock tells the story of five extraordinary women between the ages of 50 and 82 who sprint, jump, and pole vault their way through track and field competitions on their quest to make it to the World Masters Championships. These women include a three time cancer survivor, a sharecropper's daughter, a political refugee, a former cowgirl and the oldest athlete to ever be nominated for the Sullivan Award which honors top athletes in America. These women are fun, courageous and refuse to grow old quietly - and in the process, they shatter preconceptions of what it means to grow old.

Racing Against the Clock is a wonderfully uplifting and inspiring film. I really enjoyed the film from beginning to end. The way they weaved in the background of the athletes and made them come alive during their competitions was awesome. Thank you for making this film. It has motivated me to try even harder in, not only my athletic endeavors, but in all areas of my life. To hear the stories about the obstacles these women had to over come just to stay alive is enough to inspire me to do more each day. Again, thank you for making this film and I hope it will be seen by as many people as possible.

I watched the film, Racing Against the Clock, with some friends last weekend. We were three generations of women spaning an age range from 22-82. We loved it. The women were so moving in their passion about sports and in their committment to push themselves as far as possible. They were such an inspiration. They were brave, sassy, intelligent and fun! You felt knowing them would be a blast. They clearly showed us that life may just begin at 50 and in this culture of youth worship that is a feat!! I hope it will be seen by many people.

Racing Against the Clock is a precious gift for anyone who sees it. Although we may not all aspire to being competitive athletes, the movie is a tribute to the extent of human possibility and the power of will and the power of positive choice. The filmmakers approach their subjects with admiration but also with a realism that avoids fawning, I work with many older adults as their physician, and wish that all my patients could see this film. It is one of the best I've seen.

What a great and truly inspirational movie. Anyone who doesn't believe that age is just a number and you are only as old as you think you are, needs to watch this movie.
