Like most great ideas, this adventure started at a bar, when filmmaker Sam Walker, who is based in Sheffield, England, asked his buddy Dave Cook if he could run ten marathons in ten days. The result is Dave Goes West, which follows Cook and his friend Chris Jones as they run 260 miles from Dingle to Croagh Patrick on the west coast of Ireland, an entertaining yet punishing endeavor complete with stunning scenery, comedy, and bloody nipples.
