Inspirational Running Films from SHAFF17
Recently I had the pleasure of judging a range of superb running films for Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF).*
Below are my favourites. I hope they inspire you as much as they do me 🙂 Feel free share the joy by passing on to your running buddies!
Nicky Spinks is a (s)hero of mine! Amazing athlete, amazing person and what she has achieved is beyond words. Awesome film of an awesome woman. Loved her team and the camaraderie. Tears, smiles, awe.
Absolutely love the raw honesty and vulnerability portrayed by Frosty in this film. Incredible cinematography. What an amazing land & culture Papua New Guinea. Haunting yet very uplifting.
Cape Wrath Ultra
Truly wonderful! Made me wonder at what it is to be alive and what we can do. Wonderful people, wonderful scenery, wonderful adventure. Blown away!
Insane! Laughed out loud. Added to bucket list! Didn’t want it to end!
Life On The Fells
Inspirational. Fell running does indeed make you feel like a kid again. Gives you perspective when most of us complain about little injuries and you have people like Adam dealing with heart transplant and BG attempt!
The Bob Graham
Just love this story. The simplicity, the history, the mountains! Great music and imagery. Amazing.
The Crown Traverse
Brilliant, brilliant film. Adventure, friendship. Amazing traverse. Loved the 599.7 miles realisation at the end! Superb.
Beautiful life lessons and joyous message. Incredible short film.
Beauties and the Bog
Excitement, awe, fun. Very uplifting film showing how great challenges in a team can be. Love the mix of sunset, head torch, daytime shots. Great music too.
Chasing The Distance
Fantastic film. Moving and humbling yet inspiring.
Running Sucks – Story of a Barefoot Runner
Love the sound of the slate scree! Great little film.
Yours in sport
