About the author:

Nirbhasa is originally from Ireland but currently lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. He is an enthusiastic multi-day runner, having twice completed both the Ten Day Race and the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race - the longest race in the world.

For almost three years, filmmaker Sanjay Rawal has been exploring the significance of running in different cultures across the world, spending time with the Gaolo-San bushmen in Botswana, the legendary Japanese gyoman-san running monks, and Navajo runners in the deserts of Arizona. A large part of his time was spent following the 52-day journey of the 3100 Mile Race, documenting two runners - our record holder and 14-time finisher Asprihanal Aalto from Finland and first-time entrant Shamita Achenbach-König from Austria - as they bravely embark on this modern day running oddyssey.

The result of all that hard work - the compelling 80-minute long documentary 3100: Run and Become - is now being released in theaters across the USA to an extremely enthusiastic reception.

"This film shows how great anyone can become when they transcend their limits." - Tegla Laroupe, women's marathon record holder
