Mountain Running: ‘The Ingenious Choice’ Explores The World Of Mountain Runner Anton Krupicka As He Takes Part In The Ultra-Trail Du Mont Blanc [Video]

Discover how Anton Krupicka experiences mountain running and challenges himself running ultra distances on the trails.

Filmed whilst he was racing the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc, a prestigious race through the Alps of France, Italy and Switzerland

Runners are a certain kind of people. They get their kicks from pushing their limits and discovering what their bodies can take.

Why do we decide to explore mountains, trails and the wilderness?

The motivation for this film is clear and is summed up in this succinct sentence from the film-makers:

‘We can never have enough of nature”.

The Ingenuous Choice features mountain runner Anton Krupicka exploring the wilderness of the mountains, racing 100 miles and reflecting on what makes mountain running essential to him.
