the night before the big RUFA event in düsseldorf we got together in our store to watch the new patagonia trailrunning movie “run to the source".
in the film we meet martin johnson. a black trail runner from the uk who is attempting to set a new fkt record (fastest known time) on the 296 km thames path. with his personal story and this endurance challenge, martin aims to inspire the trail running and outdoor community, improve the representation of black people in this community and make it more inclusive.
the film also explores the colonial history of the united kingdom and the special connection between the black population in the uk and the thames.
