Marathon running allowed Wesley Korir to escape the grinding poverty of Kenya, by winning multiple American marathons, including the cherished Boston Marathon. But he risks it all when he returns home to run for a seat in government as an independent to help his fellow Kenyans against a well-financed, corrupt big-party candidate.
With appearances and commentary from some of the world’s greatest runner’s and commentators (Malcolm Gladwell, Haile Gebrselassie, Ryan Hall, Reid Coolsaet, Jake/Zane Robertson, Alex Hutchinson and more), Transcend follows Wesley Korir on his spiritual and life -changing quest after winning the world’s most prestigious prize: The Boston Marathon.
Transcend is the story of the elusive spiritual energy that is somehow forged in the intense rigor of long-distance running, an energy Wesley Korir is using to transform the nation that has done more than any other to change the face of marathoning.
