Worlds Toughest Ultra Marathon - 250km Atacama Crossing - Ben Seymour X Under Armour AU

Instagram: @seemorebenny
The Atacama Crossing (Chile) is part of the 4 Deserts Race Series, named by TIME magazine as one of the Top 10 Endurance Competitions in the world.
The Atacama Desert is recognized as the driest place on earth. The entire Atacama Crossing is held at least 2.3 kilometers / 1.4 miles above sea level and covers the distance required to make a horizontal crossing of the country of Chile (250 kilometers / 155 miles).
Daytime temperatures in October average 35°C / 95°F, while night time temperatures average 5°C / 41°F. Temperatures, however, range widely and the desert climate can be extremely hot during the day and cold at night.

I would like to thank Alec Baker (@alecbakerfilms) for following my journey and putting this together. Also my sponsors - Under Armour Australia.

Gobi Desert Ultramarathon race -250km across the Gobi

The Gobi Desert ultra marathon is held every year in china. Part of the Racing the Planet desert series and each year around 200 runners from around the globe test their mettle against the elements and the landscapes.
This run takes place over 7 days and sees runners racing through a range of terrains from mountains to the feared and burning hot Turpan depression. Through villages to the energy sapping sand dunes.
Lisa Tamati has been running ultra marathons in every corner of the earth for over 20 years. This documentary follows the highs and lows of her race. The battles and obstacles, the cameraderie and the dramas when one of the runners falls victim to the conditions.
Ultra marathon racing is an extreme sport that takes runners of varying abilities to their limits and beyond.

The gruelling conditions, the temperatures the distances, the full weight of bacpacks filled with everything the runners need for an entire week make these challenges brutally hard.

But the athletes are anything but elite. People from all walks of life take on the challenge and give it their all.
The documentary is an emotional journey that gives the viewer a fly on the wall look at the world of extreme sport and what it takes to run the Gobi Desert.

REI Presents: How To Run 100 Miles

In September 2017, I stepped up to the starting line of the Run Rabbit Run 100 in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, alongside my friend Jayson Sime. The race is a 102.9-mile ultramarathon with 20,000 feet of elevation gain, which is no small feat for a couple of guys who don’t know what they’re doing.

Jayson had talked me into it, and if I were to be completely honest, I’d say we were there to test out his life philosophy, which is basically that you can do anything you dream up, as long as you put in the work and refuse to quit. That ethic has worked for him in almost every other area of life, despite growing up in poverty, one of six children with no father, and dyslexia.

In the six months leading up to the race, we figured since we weren’t naturally talented runners, the best thing we could do is work hard. So we ran 50- to 70-mile weeks all summer, and went through a full range of feelings: fear, regret, sadness, FOMO, hunger, thirst, exhaustion, pain, and joy. And gluttony, which is not a feeling, but what happens after you run 20 or more miles.

How did the race go? You can watch our film, How to Run 100 Miles, to find out. No spoilers here.

THE UNKNOWN | The Hardrock 100

You really have to embrace the unknown. You can try all you want to script it - how you see the day going and have these plans. But the mountains don't care. They're indifferent to whatever plans, whatever hopes you have...

The 2016 Hardrock 100 was supposed to be a redemption race. In 2014, The North Face athlete Timothy Olson hit a figurative brick wall halfway through The Hardrock and was reduced to lying on the ground, sick and unable to continue for awhile. He eventually finished but wanted to prove to himself he could do better. He got that opportunity in 2016 when he was selected to run the race again.

Unfortunately for Timothy, deja vu would rear its ugly head and a similar fate awaited him at the Hardrock...
