Sanjay Rawal is human rights activist & award-winning documentary filmmaker. His newest film — “3100: Run and Become” — captures the esoteric, spiritual side of running with the Marathon Monks of Mt. Hiei in Japan, the Kalahari bushmen in Africa, the Navajo Nation in Arizona, the forests of Finland and the streets of NYC, tracking the famed Self -Transcendence 3100 Mile Run. This is a conversation about running as a path for enlightenment. Enjoy!
Opening in theaters in August 2018.
Can running lead to enlightenment? Can it transform your life and make you a better human being? This is the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Run, the world’s longest race – where competitors must average 59+ miles a day in the 52-day window … all around a 1/2 mile sidewalk loop in NYC. How does one even train for this race? A champion Navajo ultra-marathoner, a hunter from the Kalahari Bushmen and a Japanese Monk illustrate how we, as human beings, can and have always used running to transcend our limitations and connect ourselves to realities beyond the physical.
