Product Description

In 2010, four of the greatest undefeated mountain runners on earth toed the starting line at the Western States 100-mile endurance run, the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world.

'Unbreakable: The Western States 100' follows the four lead men on this amazing journey. Hal Koerner, two time defending Western States champion, and running store entrepreneur from Ashland, Oregon. Geoff Roes, undefeated at the 100-mile distance, an organic chef from Juneau, Alaska. Anton Krupicka, undefeated in every ultramarathon he has ever started, a graduate student living in Boulder, Colorado. Kilian Jornet, the young mountain runner and two time Ultra-trail du Mont-Blanc champion, from Spain.

While their lives may be quite different, the goal is the same: win the Western States 100-mile run. A win will require breaking the course record and running the fastest time in the history of the race. An epic showdown ensues, from Squaw Valley, CA in Lake Tahoe, up though the high snow covered Sierra Nevada Mountains, down through the extreme heat of the American River Canyons and finishing in Auburn, CA.

Though all four are undefeated, three must break and only one can remain Unbreakable.

I started running in Sept 2009 and had the goal of running the Boston Marathon. Qualified October of 2010, ran Boston April 2011, and became a trail runner as soon as I got of the plane from Boston. I ran my first 100 miler in Sept of 2011 and have done 4 more since then including Wasatch once and Bear twice. My trail running goal was to run Western States someday and after 3 years of putting my name in I got picked for the 2014 race. I have watched this movie a bunch of times to get excited and feel the energy only a 100 mile race can provide. I would recommend this to any runner who wants to be inspired by what is possible!

Great documentary in what will go down as one of the best races at ws ever. I wish they also looked into Nick Clark some, but overall a great view of the race and the runners in it.

My husband and daughter are runners and are currently training for their first ultra marathon so we watched Unbreakable: The Western States 100 together as a a family as inspiration for them and to give the rest of us a feel for what to expect as we are out on the course watching/waiting/assisting. Wow! Unbreakable was well filmed, edited and put together. We really enjoyed seeing the background and daily lives of some of the runners, appreciated how well they were tied in with where each runner was on the course and thought they did an excellent job of following each racer featured while keeping it clear where each one was during the race. Anyone involved in running, sports/fitness and endurance races of any kind will appreciate the work that went into making this film. Anyone interested in being inspired to push themselves further than they ever have before will definitely be given food for thought after viewing this!

How could I not like a movie about my favorite sport? But I will say that the race shots are great, gives one a good feel for the course. I enjoyed the profiles of the different athletes, and it really was an epic race - one worth recording for history.

This is one of my favorite movies! It's very inspiring and because of this movie I have decided to do an ultramarathon. I plan on running my first 50k sometime within the next year.

Totally inspiring look into the lives and competition of top ultrarunners at the greatest American ultra race. Four runners, previously undefeated at the 100 mile distance, converge at the 2010 Western States Endurance Run in California. The runners' humility, sense of humor, and toughness are incomparable. This is athletic competition in its purest, most essential form.

Great run documentary. If this doesn't amp you up for your next race, nothing will.

The audio levels are all over the map. Creator should've normalized the audio during processing.

For those that don't know, The Western States 100 is the primo 100-mile trail race in the world. It has been in existence for decades; and continues to draw world-class fields. For the year of publication, the producers put together a great story and documentary of 4 world class ultra-distance trail runners - 3 Americans and 1 Spaniard. The "big 4" had all won multiple 100 mile (and farther) trail races through extreme conditions. Roes had been virtually undefeated in a half-dozen 100 milers; with a notable 100-miler victory (by over 3 hours) in Alaska's frigid temps. Krupicka won the Leadville 100 - all above 9200' and peaking (twice) at 12,600'. Koerner had a decade of ultra races behind him - and a WS 100 victory. Jornet had won the prestigious UTMB in Europe - and many of his exploits weren't even races!

All 4 are followed to their respective homes in Alaska (Roes lived there in modest circumstances - near Juneau), Colorado (Krupicka lives at the base of the mountains), Oregon (Koerner owns a running store there), and Spain (where Jornet skis, runs, and never seems to sit down) - with their histories, families, girl friends, and aspirations - all with a lead-in to an epic race
