Our Judges say:

A short film about the emerging trail running scene in China. Beautiful scenery and a really interesting insight into a different running culture.

Chinas out standing you too wouldn't it be amazing to run and run there.

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Running is currently one of the fastest growing outdoor activities in China. Six years ago trail running was almost unheard of. Now there are hundreds of trail races every year. With this new found interest in outdoor sports, it seems as if trail running could serve as a bridge for a new generation of young Chinese as they reconnect with their wild spaces.
