On The Edge

On The Edge, 1985:

Aging distance runner Wes Holman (Bruce Dern) can no longer participate in American events thanks to a violation of his amateur status 20 years earlier. Convinced he’s still fit enough capture the honor he lost years ago, Holman heads to his childhood home in Northern California to train for the run of his life: the brutal Cielo Sea Race, which has crushed competitors decades younger than him. John Marley and Pam Grier costar in this potent film.

According to RunningMovies.com (YES) the Cielo Sea Race is based on the actual race called The Dipsea Race and the aerial footage in the film was taken from an actual race.

Watch the trailer after the jump and then watch the movie in full over at Netflix. It’s well worth your time, I promise.
