Better yet – want to train with Eric Orton to finish that 100-mile run? Then we’re looking for you!

Team Impossible Productions is developing an online series and television show that will follow a lucky group of 6 along their own Born to Run [BTR] experience with BTR coach Eric Orton. We're taking an incredible physical, mental, and emotional journey to achieve The Cool Impossible... and YOU could be part of it all.

Tell us about yourself – why you run, your inspiration, your fears, and why you think you can run a 100 mile ultra.

Or, maybe you’re convinced you can’t? Tell us that, too, and how you think Eric can help you overcome what’s been keeping you from attaining your ultimate running goal, whatever that is.

Just post your story, as a creative video that’s 2 minutes or less, on the Video Page of* Be wild, be crazy but, most of all, be convincing. And don’t just tell us about yourself, show us. You've got until February 28, 2012 to get it in for consideration.

6 of you just might find yourself in Jackson Hole training side by side to achieve The Cool Impossible with the ultimate running partner, Eric Orton! 


* All postings will be available for viewing by the public. Let us know if you'd prefer otherwise.

okay, so I am totally technologically challenged and I can't even do a video.  I will be cheering for all of you though!  I think this is one of the coolest things ever and maybe if they do it again, by then I will have figured out how to make and post a video!! :)  (It would help if I didn't procrastinate too!)
