A Gwich'in Ultrarunner's 4,600-Mile Journey Across Canada

Ultrarunner Bradley Firth grew up as a member of the Gwich'in Nation in Inuvik, Nunavut, an incredibly remote part of northwest Canada. But when he moved to Vancouver, Firth began using cocaine and spent the next 20 years battling his addiction. Ultimately the thing that helped him turn his life around: running. Caribou Legs, a film from the Solidarity Union, follows Bradley Firth as he runs 4,600 miles from Vancouver to St. John's, battling his own inner demons while raising awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, which seeks to end systemic violence against indigenous women.
