There is a new short film out about running, called Chasing the Distance. The film features Rob Krar, who has been an ultrarunner for less than four years and has already earned wins at Western States and Leadville. He also holds the fastest run times for both single and double crossings of the Grand Canyon. It also features some amazing scenery and is very-well done. It’s simply gorgeous. Click here to watch the film on YouTube: Chasing the Distance.
Along with his wife and training partner Christina Bauer, Krar is trying to get the word out about a proposal to create the Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument. This would place nearly 2 million acres around the already-protected Grand Canyon National Park under protection.
Run Oregon would also like to recognize sponsors Smartwool and The Sierra Club for their support of running. Programs like this are only possible with support from businesses like them.
About Kelly Barten (1152 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
