Hood to Coast isn’t just the best running movie I’ve ever seen. It may be the first movie I’ve seen that prominently features beer running.
I saw the incredible documentary earlier this year at South by Southwest, and now it’s about to get national distribution when it hits theaters around the country on 1-11-11. You can see the trailer here.
It’s almost the weekend, so let’s go to the official film description:
Hood To Coast follows four unlikely teams on their epic journey to conquer the world’s largest relay race. Each year 1000 teams (12,000 runners) in 2000 vans cover 197 grueling miles as a relay team, putting themselves through an arduous physical journey that as an individual would be impossible. Some run to test their personal limits, some to overcome personal obstacles, and others leap in blindly looking for a way to shake up a complacent life. As we follow these four teams, we realize that winning isn’t everything in a documentary that takes a celebratory look at personal motivation and attempting the extraordinary. tweet

Update: You gotta check out this bonus that Hood to Coast director Christoph Baaden cut together exclusively for the Beer Runner.
