Go to the distance



The ultimate race explores the daily routine of a group of marathon runners from the central highlands of Peru who seek to break more than their marks. One of them is Inés Melchor, a Peruvian multichampion. Through their experiences, traveling through Huancayo, Lima, Rio and Santiago de Chile, we acknowledge the challenges involved in being an elite athlete in Peru. At her best moment, Inés´s career is interrupted by an injury, and frustrates her Olympic aspirations. She had two paths: to surrender or to retake the path. As we see Inés regain strength, we discover the stories of many and different runners of Perú.
