The Mountain Runners tells the incredible true story of America’s first mountain adventure race, held in 1911.
The marathon pit a stripped-down steam train against modified “Model T” race cars to deliver runners to a 10,781 foot volcanic, glacial peak where they would race to the summit in blizzard conditions…and return.
Many would start…
few would finish.
