On September 1, 2021 we uploaded our short trail running film to YouTube. Thanks to the popularity of trail and ultra running, the film continues to gain traction around the globe. According to YouTube analytics, the majority of views are coming from United States followed by United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany. We’re also getting some great feedback from runners of all skill levels.
“Very inspirational, makes me want to go out run in the mountains immediately! Thanks for sharing, I really like the storytelling :)” – DerRunn3r
Trail running in the mountains can be difficult but proper training and preparation makes all the difference. Fifty is not about the fastest runner or about overcoming challenges. It’s about setting a goal and seeing it through. The film also celebrates the historic trail over the Cascades.
Fifty features interviews with Gary Robbins, endurance athlete and coach; Louise Blais, human kinetics professor; and Andrew Dingwall, Mighty Quail 100 km race coordinator and athlete. Fifty also features endurance runner Matt Fortuna who finished third in the 2017 Fat Dog 120 (29:06:10).
