3022 ft.

Final­ist For Best Fea­ture And Best Cin­e­matog­ra­phy In The Trail Run­ning Film Fes­ti­val

3022 ft. (direct­ed by Max Romey and Natal­ie Fedak) pro­vides an inti­mate look at one of the world’s most dan­ger­ous trail races: Alaska’s Mt. Marathon, loved by ath­letes and spec­ta­tors for its chal­leng­ing course. For over a hun­dred years on the 4th of July, run­ners have dared cliffs, scree fields and water­falls in a race up and down the 3022 feet of Mt. Marathon. The film chron­i­cles three ath­letes dur­ing the 2014 race: a stay-at-home mom who chal­lenged an Olympic ski­er for the women’s title; the men’s record-hold­er who fought to retain his title in a field of high­ly com­pet­i­tive pro­fes­sion­als; and a for­mer junior cham­pi­on who searched for a sec­ond chance after strug­gling with injury and drug addic­tion. Guid­ing us through the race is “Man of the Moun­tain” Flip Foldager, a Seward native and a 35-time race fin­ish­er. Inti­mate inter­views with the top ath­letes reveal an inspir­ing sto­ry about run­ning, com­mu­ni­ty, per­son­al strength and a race you’ll have to see to believe.
