How to Run 100 Miles

Jayson Sime had a tough start to life: he grew up facing poverty, homelessness, dyslexia and bullying. But he learned to fight. In 2017, he entered his first 100 - mile mountain ultramarathon (including a daunting 6,000m of ascent), betting on his life - long resilience to carry him to the finish line of Colorado’s epic Run Rabbit Run. A film of pain, suffering, persistence  and glory.
