Wild Trails - Chattanooga Trail Running and Trail Conservation Non-profit

FILM SCREENING | This Is Your Day: the story of inspiration. endurance. devotion

Wild Trails has partnered up with the Chattanooga Brewing Company and The Camp House to bring this film about three unique individuals Caroline Boller, Karl Hoagland, and 2015 Western States champion, Rob Krar in one of the most storied 100-mile races in the world, the Western States 100 mile endurance run.

The experience of conquering a 100 mile race can be both transcendent and agonizing…

This Is Your Day follows three unique individuals in one of the most storied 100-mile races in the world, the Western States Endurance Run. A mother, a competitive age grouper, and an elite facing the pressures as a defending champion. But the athletes are only one piece of the puzzle. The other? Family, friends and the occasional friendly stranger.

Those who volunteer to crew a Western States become a lifeline for their athlete. Water, nutrition, crucial words of encouragement, hugs when necessary, and an occasional kick in the ass play equal parts. Triumph and defeat extend equally between the athlete and their crew.

Our film brings to life the emotional highs and difficult lows of traversing 100 miles. This is a universal story about the power of the human body, the will of the mind, and the importance of the human connection. —
