Produced by runners for runners, What Moves You? is an independent documentary film currently in progress.
Told from the point-of-view of runners from all walks of life, this documentary film explores the inspiration and motivation behind the almost cult-like following the sport of running enjoys.
The film follows the stories of five very different runners in a quest to discover if they possess a similar intrinsic urge to run. Delving into the very personal reasons behind their compulsion, the film seeks to understand the biological and cultural forces that get people moving.
Through their stories, interviews with runners all over the world, and the research of several academics, the film will uncover the deeper connection that runners share with one another.

We will leave no stone unturned in our quest to find out why runners are at their happiest when they are hurting the most. This journey is a marathon and not a sprint and we intend to ask the experts, quiz the academics and test the elites until we find an answer to What Moves You?. But we can’t do it without you, the runners sharing your stories.
Please tell us below whatever it is that gets you out of bed at 5am on an icy January morning to hit the pavement or the trail. Whether you’re running from heartbreak or searching for love. Fighting your demons or for a cause, we want to know about it. You never know, we might just pick you to be a part of this exciting project.
