What’s it like to run two hundred and one miles … and know that you still have another 40 miles to go? And why would you sign up and subject yourself to such a thing?

To find out, we went to Moab, Utah, to the Moab 240 Endurance Run — a two hundred and forty mile race — to capture the very raw and unfiltered reactions from runners, pacers, friends, medics, and concerned mothers from the Geyser Aid Station located at mile 201 of the Moab 240.

These conversations collectively paint a vivid portrait of what it’s like to have just run over 200 miles while knowing that you have another 40 to go; why you’d willingly put yourself through all of this; and what this race — and this community — is really about.
