The only thing I love more than running is movies! Nothing is more inspiring than a great running movie! Below are some titles that I highly recommend. Please note that these are affiliate links.
The "first" Steve Prefontaine movie, starring Jared Leto. The incredible against-all-odds life story of track legend Steve Prefontaine and his quest for Olympic gold!
The "other" Steve Prefontaine movie, starring Billy Crudup. This movie is told in a different light than the other version and is definitely worth a watch in its own right.
|Spirit of the Marathon
Intimate documentary that follows seasoned athletes and amateurs alike in their preparation for the Chicago Marathon.
|Ultramarathon Man: 50 Marathons - 50 States - 50 Days
Follow "Ultramarathon Man" Dean Karnazes on his journey to run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days. Simply put, this is an amazing movie.
|The Long Green Line
The Long Green Line documents the York Duke High School's 2005 Cross Country season as the runners seek their record 25th state title in 50 years.
|Chariots of Fire (Two-Disc Special Edition)
A true classic and winner of the 1981 Oscar for best picture. Chariots of Fire is a true tale of determination and inspiration!
|The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
Another "classic" that tells the story of a rebellious social misfit and petty thief who is picked to run on the track team at a reform school for boys.
|Forks Over Knives
Not necessarily a "running" movie, but an extremely interesting look at how what you put in your body dectates your overall health.
|Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead
Follow Joe Cross as he juices his way from a fat, sick, and nearly dead guy, to a happy and healthy person.
