The 4 Deserts Race is one of the most phsyically demanding races on the earth, stretching over 1000 miles and 4 deserts. Desert Runners looks into the non-professional athletes who brace this grueling ultra-marathon, begging the question: why would anyone, let alone ordinary people, put themselves through this? Unearthing the motivations and past experiences that propel these athletes into the desert, this film's recommended for university courses in psychology and fitness as well as collegiate athletic departments.
