If there is such a thing as "best ultrarunner ever," Yiannis Kouros must be The Man. He owns more world records for distance than anybody. He's universally regarded as a true running champion, and Ultra-G herself also knows him as a real nice guy! This is his story.
Forever Running gives an in-depth look at the life and philosophy of the legendary Yiannis Kouros, known as the "Running God," "Golden Greek," "Pheidippides' Successor," and as the "Master of Pain." Kouros holds records from 100 miles to 1,000 miles, from 200 km to 1,600 km, and from 1 day to 10 days.
Running time: 60 minutes. Greek with English subtitles. First time ever available in the US
