Storyline

When teenagers from one of the nation's toughest neighborhoods in Oakland, California sign up to train for a marathon, they begin the journey of a lifetime. Runners High is an intimate, character driven documentary of struggle, courage, and hope. During a season filled with conflict and possibility, four of these teens bare their dreams, joys, tears and fears. As several stumble under pressure in emotionally charged moments, others realize the journey begins with the power and commitment to accept responsibility for their own futures. Runners High shows that no matter what happens next, one season of training to run 26.2 miles can change your life forever. Written by Alex D. da Silva

Great documentary!
11 May 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Great story, very inspiring, well told and extremely entertaining! This is not your usual running/program film, it's a character driven story with turns and a lot of excitement. All the kids and the adults in this story are inspiring and the way their problems and guidance is showed is very compelling and dramatic. It's all very real and you'll never feel manipulated, the photography very raw and you get to know the students quite close. I've never run before and I was so taken by the story that I felt like doing a marathon right after it. I was hooked from the very start to the last frame. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, go for it.
