Unbreakable: The Western States 100
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.

Five seconds into the movie, I was hooked.
The movie cleverly builds up to the finish, with descriptions of the sport, the course, and well-filmed biographies of the four featured runners.
And what four runners they were. You do not "root against" any of the four. There are likable personalities amongst all four, and peculiarities in each.
After watching, I was relieved that I didn't have to return it to the rental store.
Enjoyable for any trail-runner or marathoner. Ironman finishers would probably dislike it, as it makes clear that there are bigger badasses than them.
