Inspired by Foster Huntington's The Cinder Cone, and Erick Van Ingen's The Real Maine, The Truckee Video documents a house full of collegiate distance runners training for a summer in the mountains.
Tucked away in the Sierra Nevada's, 6,000ft above sea level, Truckee's claim to fame has always been the Donner Party. But this alpine paradise means something else to the Chico State cross country program. A tradition since 2004, a group of willing athletes migrate east for the summer, work part-time jobs, pay rent, and run. This video attempts to capture just that, along with everything else a summer in Truckee means to me.
Stay tuned, as The Truckee Video comes out August 5th.
