Watch Underdog (Chasing the UTMB® dream), featuring Damian Hall as he takes on the most famous ultra marathon in the world - the 171 km +10,040 m ascent UTMB® - the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. His aim is break into the elite ranks of the top 10 male podium finishers. The athletes he is up against are professional, full-time runners. Younger and faster, many live and train in the mountains. 
 

'I was trying to be like them...UTMB® had become an obsession I felt unable to control at times. It’s not just a 105-mile race in the Alps with 10,000m of vertical gain. In mountain ultrarunning, it’s the Super Bowl. It usually has the strongest line-up of any trail race in the world, this year including Kilian Jornet, US speedsters Jim Walmsley, Zach Miller and Tim Tollefson, 2017 Western States winner Ryan Sanders, Spain’s three-time Trail World Champion and Olympian Luis Alberto Hernando, and anyone who was anyone in the sport. ' Damian Hall, in Sidetracked Magazine. 

This film takes us back to the atmosphere of this mythical race that is the UTMB. The landscapes, the atmosphere, the surpassing oneself, everything is there...

But Damian is not a professional runner... So we come to own his dream, to hope for success. This is what makes this movie a different film from those that trace the great performance of champions on such ultra-trails.
