Breaking 60
 
 

ABOUT THE FILM

Shot over a period of five months in the build up to and during the challenge days, the film explores the world of extreme ultra running.

It seeks to get in the minds of the runners, to understand why they would undertake such a huge challenge and follow how they set about preparing for the task.

CHALLENGING THE IMPOSSIBLE

The Hong Kong Four Trails is a 298km challenge spanning the entire width and breadth of Hong Kong.

Those hopefuls taking on the challenge will pit themselves against the clock as they look to complete four ultra distance trails in under 60 hours. 

Only those with the physical ability and mental resolve to relentlessly continue through two nights and three days will finish. 

Those athletes will be challenging the impossible.
