Running Documentaries and Videos You Should Watch #10: SC Featured – Run: The Robert Young Story

Although this documentary is about a man, Robert Young, attempting to run across the United States in record time, this stranger-than-fiction kind of story almost really isn’t about that.

Todd Kapostasy produces a fascinating story of what he thought was going to be a man overcoming the adversity of his past by running across the United States in record time.  As Kapostasy films alongside Rob’s attempt at breaking a 36-year-old record, Kapostasy finds himself deep down the rabbit hole playing detective to find the answers.

Creative, fascinating, compelling, this SC Featured documentary explores whether or not Robert Young cheated his way across America.
