We asked our 2017 Simple Hydration Run Team members a variety of running-related questions. This third post we share their favorite run movies. You might just discover a new run movie to watch.
What is your favorite run movie?
“Chariots of Fire”
I love both “Spirit of the Marathon” movies. They are bound to inspire you and I highly recommend watching the first one before your first marathon or 20 miler. It will keep you going.
“Run, Fat Boy, Run.” A British movie that is hilarious!!!! Simon Pegg stars. Best example of hitting the wall ever! Very funny!
Robin Zehnder Muskopf
“The Barkley Marathons” – Seriously the craziest running event in the world. I love it.
Jacqueline Ann C. Santos
“Spirit of the Marathon”
“From Fat to Finish Line” on Netflix had me in tears. It’s easy to think all runners or athletes are supposed to be one size/shape and this documentary shows you how far from the truth that is. So inspirational!
“Running Brave” (based on fellow University of Kansas alum Billy Mills)
Reman Chim Tat Wee
“Summits of my Life”
Alberto Gomez Monteseguro
“Everest” (is more of hiking)
Hafisz Nosly Wazid
and “The Long Green Line” (fan of Cross Country)
“Mont Blanc” by Billy Yang Films.
It’s not exactly a movie, but a short film on Youtube. I must have watched it at least 10 times by now!
