Update: Part two of “Wind Drinkers” is out! Watch it here.
The Bridger Ridge Run, outside Bozeman, Montana, is a 20-mile race that gains 6,800 feet and loses almost 10,000, on some of the most exposed, technical trails you can imagine. “Wind Drinkers,” a short film by Eric Bendick, celebrates the race’s 30th running, which occurred in August 2014. Through mid-run interviews with runners, and stunning aerial footage of sweeping ridgelines and dizzying descents, the film brings this storied run to life.
