“I want to see if I am made of tough stuff,” says ultrarunner Jason Thienel at the beginning of The NoNo, a documentary about his attempt to complete the No Business 100—a race which ascends roughly 14,500 vertical feet through the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in Tennessee and Kentucky—twice in one push, a 200-mile quest. The film, from Jamie Jean and Elliot Davis of Blackfip Creative, captures the joys and challenges of ultrarunning and features interviews with both Thienel and his wife, Amber.
