Our pressing Timeline/ Itinerary:

Tomas will be returning for the first time in over 25 years to northern Chile to support his son at the end of the race and reconnect with a land he once knew.
Feb. 27, 2012– Fly down to Calama Airport, Chile a few days before the race. Adjust to the altitude, head to San Pedro, begin filming.
March 4-11, 2012 – 7 days of running and filming through the driest desert of the world!
March 12 – 15, 2012 – RECOVER
March 15, 2012 – Begin Edit
Why not shoot next year? This is a time dependant story based on the course of an individuals life in motion. As we all know – a documentary is about capturing the story of THE moment – thus we’re in a time crunch! Please help support the cause.
