Wednesday May 30
American Mountaineer Center, Golden, CO (Directions)
6:00 – 7:00 pm – Meet and greet with 3 of the athletes who are featured in 3 of the films:
Adam Campbell – Adam Campbell’s life has revolved around motion. As one of the world’s top ultra runners, his mantra has been simple: ‘If you’re not moving, you’re dead’. This life of movement came to an abrupt halt on August 30th, 2016, when he experienced a near fatal accident while attempting a traverse through Roger’s Pass in BC, with runners Nick Elson and Dakota Jones. Grabbing a loose rock hold, Adam tumbled nearly 100 feet, sustaining 4 broken vertebrae, a crushed iliac crest and deep lacerations to the bone.
Having a body now supported with titanium rods and screws, Adam begins to question the integrity of his athletic future.
Ten months later, while searching for the athlete he once was, Adam finds himself at the start line of the Hardrock 100, a hundred mile ultra race he medalled at in the past. It’s within these hundred miles that Adam discovers what he’s looking for won’t be found on the results board.
Courtney Dauwalter – What does it take for the human body and mind to run more than 155 miles in a day? When Courtney Dauwalter sets foot on a trail, it’s to see what human boundary she can break next. Courtney is not only the American female record holder for the most miles completed in 24 hours, She is crushing every race she races. She won the competitive Run Rabbit Run by a couple hours and ran the last 10 miles blind. Six weeks later she won the Moab 240 outright by more than 10 hours. What drives her? How does she push herself to complete such a drastic feat of endurance? Boundary Breaker takes a look into the humble Courtney Dauwalter’s life and gives the viewer a behind-the-scenes look at this talented runner.
Clare Gallagher – Course Correction – World Class Ultra Runner, Leadville 100 Champion Clare Gallagher, was headed toward medical school, until she realized the path everyone else wanted her to take wouldn’t make her happy. So she took one step back, 100 miles forward, and went in a new direction.
