Marathon Fever: Running, Bicycling, Skiing

Marathon Fever: Running, Bicycling, Skiing

Bronze Award -NY Intl. Ski Film Festival
Over the past 30 years there has been a virtual explosion of marathon sporting events in the U.S. and Europe. Currently there are thousands of marathon running, cycling, and skiing events held each year, where world class athletes, amateurs, and sports enthusiasts test the limits of their physical conditioning and mental resolve. Formerly an elite activity reserved for only the hardiest of humans, the marathon has gained new popularity due to the interest of thousands of amateur athletes who increasingly strive to discover the limits of their own capabilities. This classic program focuses on individuals trying to achieve personal victories. It is not about world records, but about dedication, drive, and personal accomplishment. Producer Harvey Edwards captures this human spirit through original footage from running, cycling, and skiing marathon events in the U.S., Switzerland, and France. Within an historical framework, Edwards addresses the evolution of the modern day marathon and he shows the sheer determination of people choosing to confront supreme physical and mental challenges. Viewers of this program may want to lace up their running shoes, strap on their cross country skis, and climb onto their touring bikes so that they too can experience the magic of the marathon, "where victory belongs to every human being who finishes." 95/12DE IJSCA 25 min.
