Why is he running?

This spring Carlos will set out on a journey across America combining the two things he loves and excels at most: filmmaking and running. From New York to California, he will cover nearly 3,000 miles.

As if running across the country wasn't enough, the RCR mission is threefold: a web series, a narrative short, and an awareness campaign. Along with a team of filmmakers Carlos will meet people from all walks of life and learn more about the journeys they've taken to fulfill their dreams. From the skyscrapers of New York, to the plains in Iowa, to the California Coast the RCR team will capture the majestic landscapes and get to know the people that inhabit them.
