The Trans Canada Trail—which covers more than 17,000 miles, connects 15,000 communities, and reaches the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans—is, unsurprisingly, the longest trail network in the world. Beloved by many Canadians, it is especially important to Vancouver-based Judith Kasiama, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo and founder of Colour the Trails, which organizes outdoor adventures for underrepresented communities in Vancouver. Kasiama uses the Trans Canada Trail for running and hiking and says, in this film by Moves Media and the Trans Canada Trail organization, that it’s bringing people from all walks of life and different backgrounds to the outdoors.
