Racing Time

A 70-year-old fell runner travels across rough terrain, in extreme weather conditions, to reach his ultimate goal.

Film notes

Racing Time is an adaptation of the poem Racing Time by Chris Woods.
It was originally published by Comma Press in the collection of poems, Dangerous Driving by Woods in 2007.

The poem was originally inspired by the poet's neighbour, Ron Heaton, a 70-year-old fell runner. Woods was impressed by Heaton's resolve to run in all weathers. The story behind this poem and the words thus inspired the film makers to create a
work where the audience travel with him.
