Running Movies

Here are some movies you can see if they have at your local Video store. They will help you get motivated and stay motivated to run. Take a look.... and enjoy!

Without Limits is a movie about the running life of Steve Prefontaine (a.k.a. Pre). Pre is known to many as the best American distance runner ever. This movie shows why. The records he broke are one thing, but his spirit and willingness to lay it all on the line every race is another. Starring Billy Crudup as Prefontaine and Donald Sutherland as legendary coach Bill Bowerman, this is a great, entertaining movie about the life of Pre.

Prefontaine is another film that provides a look into the running life of Steve Prefontaine. Much like Without Limits, this movie is entertaining and inspiring. Both are excellent and a must see for anyone who enjoys running movies.

Chariots of Fire is considered by many to be the greatest running movie of all time. Winner of the 1981 Academy Award for Best Picture, this film is a true story of two Olympic runners who won gold in the 1924 Olympics.

Running Brave is the story of Billy Mills, an American Indian and winner of the 10,000 meters at the 1964 Olympics. The win is considered to be one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history.
