She Runs It! A grass roots movement (founded by Tasha Keating) which inspires playful, physical activity in others, brought 10 women together to train up for a crazy challenge in collaboration with Reebok UK. Ragnar Relay UK is an 177 mile relay race consisting of teams of ten, running three legs each, across the countryside and around the coasts over 36 hours.
The 10 diverse, influential, female entrepreneurs, all from London & used to the hustle and bustle of life (with most never running more than 5km at a time), decided to challenge themselves and take on this life changing and positively stimulating experience. This short doc takes you on a heart-warming adventure with these brave and hilarious women, from the start of their journey together (with training sessions lead by Tasha Keating) and delivers a raw story of ambitious women supporting each other through a strenuous, healing and exhilarating time.
With significant risks associated with taking part in an ultra challenge in the complete sticks, see how these ladies feat with 36 hours in two vans and no sleep, working as a team to complete their legs and drive to each checkpoint. Filmed by Ashleigh Jade’, this visual captures the real highs and lows of such a fear-facing experience, the UK’s stunning landscapes and the determined yet light-hearted strength of this female collective.
In 2020, She Runs It! will be holding another exciting training challenge for women aged 16+ of all abilities. Stay up to date and see how you can get involved in future challenges by signing up to the mailing list: www.sherunsit.co.uk
