This rap video, created by Arizona-based runners Ruairi Moynihan and Miguel Moreno, parodies trail running culture, from long runs and post-run beers to dehydration, cramps and scraped knees.
The pair wrote and performed the song at a talent show at the 2016 Born To Run Ultramarathon Festival in Los Olivos, California. They received such a positive response that they decided to put together a music video.
The duo wanted to highlight their local Arizona running community, as well as friends in nearby states. “We even got some prominent runners in on the fun, including Jim Walmsley.” says Moynihan. “We wanted to capture the essence of trail running in a relatable yet quirky way.”
