Tells the story of America's first mountain adventure race, which took place in 1911 in Whatcom County, Washington. The geographic goal of the race was Mt. Baker, a 10,781 foot volcanic peak set in a vast wilderness area about 30 miles from Bellingham. Participants were to travel to the base of Mt. Baker, climb to the summit and back down, then return to Bellingham. Fourteen runners started out but very few crossed the finish line, where a prize purse of $100 in gold awaited them.

VERY GOOD 2012 documentary about 1911-1913 Mt. Baker mountain adventure races.
Excellent filmography integrating contemporary mountain footage and historical film/photography.

GREAT story about where I live. I love Maple Falls/Kendall/Hamsters/Glacier. Love knowing the history of my county. The Harvey Haggard fest/howdown is great fun up here. Just slightly south of Heaven.

Delightful. A great movie. Although it's a documentary about a race, non-runners will love this movie. I mean, who doesn't love crazy stories about Edwardian-era endurance events with no regard to personal safety? Plus, its topic is set in the zany pre-War Pacific Northwest. This movie would make any fan of Stewart Holbrook proud.
