Run For Your Life

Feature Documentary | 1 X 90′

Man stood up and began running 4.5 million years ago. Our ability to run long distances allowed us to hunt, survive and flourish. We became the most successful species on the planet, so successful that we no longer needed to run. So we stopped. We’ve become sedentary, obese, disconnected from nature and it’s killing us, literally.

Forty years ago in Munich, Frank Shorter won the Olympic Marathon, helping the world heal from the terrorist attack and ushering in a running boom that hasn’t stopped. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry. Today over 50,000 people complete the New York City Marathon. People are running again. It’s the cheapest, most available form of exercise on the planet. Walter Forsyth laces up a pair of sneakers to travel the globe exploring the reasons why people are running for their lives. Developed with the support of CBC and the Canadian Media Fund.
