Runner is a short film from filmmaker Andy Lloyd that follows Australian trail runners Majell Backhausen and Blake Hose as they run through stunning alpine terrain. The duo talk about why they run and the enjoyment they get from pushing their bodies. As Lloyd shared, “I wanted to create a film that transcends just running and resonates with anyone who's escaped the 9 to 5 slog to pursue something they’re truly passionate about.” You can follow Lloyd on Instagram here.
