Women’s Trail & Ultra Running Films

One of the most motivating mediums is through film. They provide you with a way to see, hear and connect. Whether it be inspiration or the ability to relate, this library of women’s running films will have you feeling empowered.

A special thanks to Trail Sister Silke Koester for rounding up the films, and also to all the film makers who share these women’s stories.  If you know of a film that should be added to the library, let us know!

Now grab some popcorn and prepare to be inspired, and then promptly lace up your shoes for a run!

These days, there is a lot of conversation about systemic change to promote the growth of women in trail and ultra running. While the conversation definitely needs to be had, as someone who creates media in our sport, I look more towards the root and opportunity for real growth by shining a light on the stories of inspirational, badass athletes to show the younger female generation worthy women to aspire to become, and even exceed some day.  – Billy Yang
