I wouldn't put this in the category of 'must-see' but this is a filler documentary that highlights the positive attributes of an extreme event. This film gives an you a view inside the van of a team of runners completing a nearly 200 mile race from Mt. Hood to the beach of the Pacific Ocean, hence the Hood to Coast title.
There are three teams that are followed and interviewed, which includes pre-race and post race interviews, some of which are very touching while at the other time some are lighthearted and funny.
The most important element is to glean the motivations of these runners as to why they would subject themselves to such torture. As someone who has run a similiar race to Hood to Coast this was the most fascinating part for me.
Ultimately I think you will enjoy this film but don't trip over yourself to watch it.
I am a runner and 3X Ironman finisher and lover of all things endurance. This documentary, I feel, gave me the insight and up close view of what this race is probably like. It is funny (Dead Jocks in a box), poignant (They Bowe family/friends), and a little scary/creepy (Heart and Sole) teams. The Laiken team is very funny and one that I wish I could have been a part of.
The documentary takes you through the entire race and interviews the above teams from pre race to post and everything in between. No holds barred!
I can't wait to sign up for the lottery in 2013! Me 11 friends, 2 vans and lots of sweat!

I ran this a few years ago and had a great time. This was fun to watch because I experienced it in person. Not sure how enjoyable it would be if you haven't run this before.Published 7 months ago by Pkg Guy
