VIDEO: All the Running Idols That Fit in an 80-Second Montage

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

This short video cuts together footage of American ultrarunners in the Grand Canyon, Tarahumarans in the Copper Canyons of Mexico, international track athletes duking it out and Kenyan distance runners in training, for an 80-second espresso shot of inspiration. The soundtrack combines Burundian drumbeats with a recording from the 1972 5000-meter Olympic final, at which Steve Prefontaine raced.

The video was produced by TRUE MVMNT and The Colorado Running Ranch.
