Chasing the Distance is a personal look into the lives of ultra-running athletes and husband and wife team Rob Krar and Christina Bauer. They share their deep connection to each other and the area of the proposed Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument in Arizona. This short film offers a glimpse into their personal struggles with depression and how ultra-running provides an outlet and ultimately life-changing experience. Though intimately connected with the well-being of Grand Canyon National Park and the health of local communities, this area remains at risk from threats such as toxic uranium mining. A national monument designation would permanently protect the region. Take action with the Sierra Club at sc.org/grandcanyonheritage.
