Mountain Running, Mormonism, and a Pathway to Spirituality

Ultrarunning, especially in the mountains, often takes on spiritual and religious dimensions: sacrificing the body and pushing beyond one’s natural limits to experience transcendence. In this session, two ultra runners—one in his thirties and one in his late fifties—will share their experience of conversing with God through this sport, placing it in the context of Mormonism and its unique concepts of spirit, body, creation, and nature. The session includes a viewing of the 9-minute documentary “Holy.”
