THE BLACK HOLE OF ULTRAMARATHONS
888 kilometers. 10 days. 20 runners. Infinite possibilities.
"No course profile, no photos, no description or information on the event. To some extent, it is more obscure than the famed Barkley Marathons. It’s like the black hole of ultrarunning – an event exhibiting such a strong gravitational pull that no information can escape from it."
- Greg Salvesen, 2015 Infinitus Finisher
ABOUT THE FILM
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
– Albert Einstein
Facing Infinitus explores the unique motivations of people inexorably drawn to a race deliberately designed to break competitors both mentally and physically. Every mile takes us a step closer to understanding why these runners have committed themselves to more than just an ultramarathon.
This documentary reveals that sometimes it takes such an event to prove we can overcome our fears, push our limits, and commit to something bigger than ourselves in racing and in life. Facing Infinitus proves adversity introduces us to ourselves.
This is the story of ordinary people with extraordinary spirit. Everybody has their own race to run. When you support Facing Infinitus, you will join a movement that is dedicated to empowering people to overcome obstacles in life.
