The non-stop ultra-distance run from Athens to Sparta is equal to 6 consecutive Marathons. It is called the Spartathlon and has become one of the most prestigious and hardest running races of modern times.
ULTRA is the story of five people from across Europe, who dedicate their lives to completing this radical journey. Through a whole year of preparation, training, contemplation, longing and self-discovery, we follow them as they confront extreme hardship and surpass the limits of their body and their mind, to get a taste of immortality and experiences their own mortality.
