Video Shows Ultrarunning Couple’s Deep Connection To Grand Canyon

This gorgeous four-minute film, Chasing The Distance, is a true testament to how valuable the Earth is to humans.

“Chasing the Distance” is a personal look into the lives of ultrarunning athletes and husband and wife team Rob Krar and Christina Bauer. They share their deep connection to each other and the area of the proposed Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument in Arizona. Though intimately connected with the well-being of Grand Canyon National Park and the health of local communities and economies, this area remains at risk from threats such as toxic uranium mining. A national monument designation would permanently protect the region. Take action!
