In this short film an elderly runner traverses across rough terrain in extreme
weather conditions, struggling with the elements, the landscape and ultimately with time itself.

Racing Time is an adaptation of the poem Racing Time by Chris Woods.
It was originally published by Comma Press in the collection of poems, Dangerous Driving by Woods in 2007.
Inspired by the poet's neighbour Ron Heaton, a 70-year-old fell runner. Woods was impressed by Heaton's resolve to run in all weathers. The story behind this poem and the words thus inspired the film makers to create a work where the audience travel with him.
