The Best Trail Running Films

The perfect videos to watch for those stuck-inside treadmill days, for inspiration, for nostalgia, or just to chill out. We think these are some of the best trail running films around both because of the camera content as well as the stories being told. Grab some popcorn (and maybe a notebook to write down some songs for your new running soundtrack too).

And that outro…

We’re not sure if Jim’s running or Jamil (with the camera) is more impressive in this record-breaking crossing of the Grand Canyon.

In the High Country

Anton Krupicka’s 200+ mile weeks in the Rocky Mountains helped shape trail running as we know it. This is how he got started. (You see that Long’s Peak part though?)

Four Pass Loop

Just outside the mountain town of Aspen, Colorado lies one of the pinnacle trail running experiences in Colorado: The Four Pass Loop. Enveloped by flowered tundra, alpine lakes, jagged peaks, lush grasses, streams, and every color in the spectrum, this giant loop takes you for a ride, as its name claims, over four separate mountain passes.

Leadville 100 Mile

Rich with mining history, the Race Across the Sky is one of America’s original 100 milers and one of the most competitive. Bring your high-altitude lungs!
