"What is an ultra? What happens when you go beyond 50k?"
Anna-Marie Watson is one of the UK's leading ultra runners, she is currently ranked 7th in the Ultra Trail World Tour Annual Women's Rankings and has won the inaugural UTMB Oman (2018) and the Half Marathon des Sables (2017).
In this short film she looks back on her first event 10 years ago and shares her thoughts on why she runs and what it brings to her life.
This film is part of our #FindingEmpowerment project. At Find It Film our mission is to use film to inspire, encourage and showcase women and girls as role models in the pursuit of getting more people active in sport and outdoor adventure. So it matters to us that we understand more about this idea of ‘empowerment’, directly through the experiences and stories of women and girls, so we’re on a journey to research, talk to, film, blog and generally explore and record these experiences and views.
