Running For Good is a feature length sports documentary following world record marathon runner, Fiona Oakes, in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth” the Marathon Des Sables, 250km race through the Sahara Desert.
Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as an endurance runner apart from the rest. She is the fastest women in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents and the north pole in both cumulative and elapsed time. She has competed internationally in more than 50 marathons and set 4 marathon course records around the globe, including The Antarctic Ice Marathon. In 2015 Fiona ran 6 marathons in 6 days on 6 continents.
Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run, after undergoing radical knee surgery to remove a massive tumor and her entire right kneecap.
With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals around the world.
Fiona operates almost single handedly an animal sanctuary caring for nearly 400 formerly abused and neglected animals, all while training more than 100 miles a week in running.
Fiona has utilized the benefits of a Vegan diet for the last over 25+ years.
Running For Good will chronicle Fiona Oakes remarkable racing achievements, her overcoming childhood illness and disability and her incredibly demanding training and work schedule caring for 400 animals.
