What the trails have in store.
Go beyond the finish line and into the lives of the racers that run Alaska's most beloved race in this upcoming documentary by film making duo Max Romey and Natalie Fedak.
Filmed on the dangerous slopes of Mt. Marathon in Seward Alaska, 3022 Ft. aims to give mountain racing fans a behind the scenes look at the mountain each athlete has to climb before they even get to the starting line. Follow two-time Olympic skier Holly Brooks as she faces the mountain that put her in a hospital gurney 5 years ago, Mt. Marathon men's record holder Eric Strabel as he defends his title, Seward native Denali Foldager as she makes her running comeback after struggling with injuries and drug addiction, Matt "The Bear" Novakovich as he looks to reclaim his title with a new Spartan Racing skill set, and 2013 Mt. Marathon champion Christy Marvin, full time mother of three looking to earn her rank among Olympians. Guiding us through the story is long time friend of the mountain, Flip Foldager, a 35 year veteran of the race, and "the guy to talk to" for all things Mt. Marathon.
The film is currently in post-production, which means that all the footage from race day, interviews and interactions is being processed and edited. 3022ft. will be finished in Spring of 2015.
It starts with an 80 foot boat, 14 people, and 100,000 pounds of trash.
