Pitch video


The Finlayson Arm 28k/50k/100k is a trail running event based outside Victoria BC. The race traverses 100km of rugged, mountainous terrain. The race spans a 3-day period in September of each year. It takes a vast, dedicated community of organizers and volunteers to produce such an event. Follow along as Race Director Myke Labelle and his event crew welcome runners from all over the world to their hometown trail network. This project will focus on the characters who bring this event to life, the work involved, and the motives behind producing such a race - as well as showcasing the natural beauty of the area. Human Powered aims to document the world of Ultramarathon Running through the eyes of those who dream up such events.
