Vertical kilometer

The main character of the film comes to the Tigertysh skyrunning festival for the first time to take part in one of the races - the Vertical Kilometer distance. This is basically the first skyrunning competition in a girl's life. She has been training for two months and wants to check whether she is ready for the test, whether she can cope with the taiga trails, whether she can climb a mountain and climb 1000 meters running.

During the race, she shares her feelings and emotions, talks about the peculiarities of the local nature, introduces skyrunning. The film is filled with stories and stories of professional athletes who conquer dozens of peaks every year by running.

In the finale, the main character with difficulty, but overcomes the distance, rethinks her presence at the festival. From "no more for anything" to "I will definitely come back here next year." An excellent instruction film for those who, like the main character, are interested in skyrunning, but cannot decide to get up and run. The film is an inspiration, after watching which dozens of followers appeared. They are training and preparing for the next festival.
