A 50 miler is typically not a distance you can run off the couch. Fifty follows an amateur runner as he tackles his first ultra marathon in the mountains. The challenging 50-mile (80 km) course runs along an ancient Indigenous pathway and is part of the historic HBC fur brigade route. Training for the run took place over six months and included coaching advice from endurance athletes Gary Robbins and Eric Carter.
ET2media created a second version of this film entitled First 50 Miler. The film five-minute documentary is a condensed version of the same story. First 50 Miler has been submitted to a number of film festivals for consideration.
