Streets to the Peaks | The Alpine Run Project

Twelve young athletes are changing the world, here to defy the odds and show that nothing is impossible. Only 43% of inner city youth complete the weekly recommendation of physical activity. This is reflected in the sport of trail running, which is still essentially the domain of middle-class white men. By 2027, the Alpine Run Project with John McAvoy, Nike, JD Sports, and YBB will help 100,000 young people from diverse backgrounds in cities across Europe participate in trail running. By doing so this year, these 12 runners are part of a movement that will change the face of sport. This documentary captures their emotive and powerful journey to inspire change, from city streets to the epic alpine trail race at UTMB.
