Ultra running is, on its own, an incredibly insane and impressive sport. The technical definition is any footrace longer than the regular length of a marathon, or 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometers). Adding extreme routes and conditions to the already insane distances feels incredibly mental, but there will always be people in this world who seek to push the limits as much as possible.
The activities presented in HIELO, from The North Face, is a great example of that need to push the limits. Plus it’s a visually gorgeous short film, with some incredible shots of the Patagonia Andes.
