Running for Good – The Fiona Oakes documentary. From executive producer James Cromwell and award-winning director Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health) comes Running for Good, the feature-length sports documentary that follows world-record marathon runner Fiona Oakes as she attempts to not only set a new world record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest foot race in the world”, the Marathon Des Sables, a 250 km race through the Sahara desert. Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the world’s fastest woman to run a marathon across all seven continents and the North Pole, both in cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made all the more amazing by the fact that at 14 she was told she would never walk properly, let alone run. He would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries that ultimately led to the removal of his entire right kneecap. The process was agonizing, the rehabilitation worse, the records he has managed to set even more astonishing. In overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of human speed and endurance is motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness about the plight of animals. Her achievements help fund a sanctuary of more than 400 animals that she cares for every day.
