Run While You Can

Run While You Can FINAL Play Button

In 2011, Sam Fox embarked on an unbelievable challenge: to run along the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to Mexico at record-breaking speed. In order to complete the 2,650-mile journey and break the world record, he must finish in 60 days, running at an unbelievable pace of 44 miles a day. Emboldened by his mother’s ongoing struggle with Parkinson’s disease, Fox runs both to raise awareness for the illness and to express gratitude for his mother’s strength. Along the trail, Fox pushes both his mind and body to dramatic limits in an extraordinary display of empathy for the bodily challenges his mother faces each day. Discussion with director Marion Mauran, moderated by Mark Lorenzoni (Ragged Mountain Running & Walking Shop)
