Arctic John - The Movie

When Kerr McNichol contacted me after I'd replied to the Montane Cheviot Goat Ultra's open question to entrants about how people started running I could never have believed it would come to this. A cracking film about why I run with clips from races and important life events woven through the story. Crosssection Industries is his fledgling production company and what a job he's done.

This is me meeting Kerr to give him a thank you present, the book Filming the Impossible, and at the same time receive a framed picture of the opening shot from him as a momento. The film was made by Kerr and Scotty as part of their University degree, on a student budget, with lots of hard graft and attention to detail throughout. It's been an absolute pleasure to get to know them both and I wish them well in their futures - I'm sure they are destined to go a long way and my life is all the better for knowing them.

Without further ado here is a link to the movie itself. There is a wider story about the role that homebirth played in my motivaiton to start running and the shocking state of home birth options and one to one midwifery care currently available but that will have to wait for another day...
