This 90 minute documentary film features Canadian Ferg Hawke as well as Scott Jurek, Dr. Ben Jones, Charlie Engle, Ray Zahab, Monica Scholz, Pam Reed, Dean Karnazes, Marshal Ulrich, and Mike Sweeney as they experience the Badwater 135 ultramarathon race. Footage from both the 2005 and 2006 races are included as well as interviews, course profile, blister care, and finish line drama. The race itself is broken into the six legs and even after 90 miles three athletes are seperated by only about a mile and a half. The finish is amazing with records falling and 11 athletes are shown crossing the line. An additional 120 minutes of extra special features are presented on this DVD which is setting the standard for capturing ultra running experiences.
