3CC03B51-3F31-40AA-9B80-60A501E2A072I typically do not write about Running or endurance running, but I wanted to share with you this fantastic film. Desert Runners is a film that takes you all across the planet to follow several endurance runners attempting to achieve what most people have never even heard of.

The race is called the 4 Deserts race. The 4 races are in the  Atacama Desert in Chile, the Gobi Desert in China, the Sahara in Egypt , and Antarctica. Completing all four races in one year is known as the 4 Desert Series “Grand Slam” The first man to ever successfully complete this feat  was world- famous “Ultramarathon Man,” Dean Karnazes.  The documentary follows several runners Ricky, Samantha, Dave, and Tremaine who are competing to join the few who hold the title of being a  4 Desert Series “Grand Slam” runner.
