Few sporting events, with maybe the exception of ultra marathons, have tapped into those three essential cores of humanity quite like RAAM; an event which is roughly 800 miles longer in distance than the Tour de France, but is covered in approximately a third less of the time. The documentary film, which has received critical acclaim and won awards at various film festivals, covers the individual competition of the 2005 Race Across America. Sadly, it
