Running America Casting Call

Runners Wanted For Running Documentary

Last year I told you about an amazing documentary about the two men who ran 4,000 miles across the Sahara Desert to create widespread public awareness of the water crisis in Africa. This year Charlie Engle and Marshall Ulrich are at it again, except you can be part of it.

This year's project is called Running America and it's taking place on a route from California to New York (3,106 miles). The casting company is looking for five people per mile, so your chances are good of getting in (and you only have to run one mile). Anyone and everyone is eligible to apply, no matter how young, or old, no matter if you are disabled, or if you have never run before. Pretty cool, right?

What a great way to not only run for a cause, but to also possibly get your big break all while burning a few extra calories. Interested? Then submit your application here.

I don't really want to pay to apply, it seems kind of gimmicky

Yeah, it won't let me apply. I don't mind paying $4, but the link doesn't work.

Hee, kia. I thought to myself you must live in Boulder and then checked your profile. I was going to send this to my husband, but Boulder is nearest to us, too. Oops.

Of course they are running through my new town. There are like over 80 past Olympians who live here. Everyone runs like a gazelle and I don't think I'll make the cut with them LOL!
