FREE TO RUN examines the evolution of running from an elitist activity to a democratized sport during the liberation movements of the 1960s.

Today, all anybody needs to run is the determination and a pair of the right shoes. But just fifty years ago, running was viewed almost exclusively as the domain of elite male athletes who competed on tracks. With insight and propulsive energy, FREE TO RUN director Pierre Morath traces running’s rise to the 1960s, examining how the liberation movements and newfound sense of personal freedom that defined the era took the sport out of the stadiums and onto the streets, and how legends like Steve Prefontaine, Fred Lebow, and Kathrine Switzer redefined running as a populist phenomenon.

 

Critic Quotes: 

“Uses interviews with enthusiasts and innovators … to illustrate how freedom, equality and community fueled the democratization of an elite sport.” – Village Voice
