Each year the Trails In Motion Film Festival brings a selection of the finest trail and ultra running films to communities around the world. As always, the 2016 world tour line up will feature a wide variety of exciting and inspirational stories.
Endurance, personal discovery, adventure, community, even conservation are central to the theme of the Trails In Motion 4 line up, each film offering new insight into why people choose to run, showcasing some of the planet’s most breath-taking trail running destinations in the process.
In 2015, the world tour reached audiences in excess of 14,000+ at 167 screenings across 26 countries as far afield as Mexico, Japan, New Zealand, even on the Atlantic islands of the Azores and Tenerife, a feat the Trails In Motion team are seeking to emulate in 2016.
Tour Director James Hallett says: “Our on-going objective with the Trails In Motion Film Festival is to not only present trail and ultra running film makers with the opportunity to showcase their work, but also to create a unique community experience for the thousands of people who attend screenings around the world. What’s important to us is that our audiences get to socialize with like-minded people, away from the typical race-day environment, and in doing so leave with a true sense of inspiration and excitement about the sport.”
Among the seven films on the Trails In Motion 4 world tour is the headliner production This Is Your Day, a film by American photographer and film maker Myles Smythe. The film documents the lives of elite athletes Rob Krar (The North Face) and Caroline Boller (Nike Trail Running), as well as Ultrarunning Magazine editor Karl Hoagland as they prepare for, and race the 2015 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, the oldest 100-miler in the world.
The 2016 world tour schedule will be available from January 1st on the Trails In Motion website.
