1 Day. 100 miles. The idea sounds impossible to most of us, but that's the challenge Soquel's Ashley Lindsey faces in "Solstice," which documents her attempt to finish the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The world's oldest and most prestigious 100 mile trail race, Western States runners travel from Squaw Valley to Auburn, battling bitter cold, stifling heat, and their own mental and physical limitations along the way. From mountain peaks to river canyons, runners climb over 18,000 vertical feet and descend nearly 23,000 feet on this ultimate challenge for long distance runners.
"Solstice" takes us inside Ashley's experience as a rookie attempting to run 100 miles for the first time. Featuring appearances by Gordy Ainsleigh, Topher Gaylord, Anita Ortiz, and Ken "Cowman" Shirk, this is a story of one woman's attempt to prove that "impossible" is just a word.
Doors open at 7:00pm, with live music by the film's composer Rory Clendon. The film will begin at approximately 7:45pm. Running time: 51 minutes

Andy Hofman is a local filmmaker and partner in HFrame Studio, a full service video and media firm. Whenever one of his friend's does something that sounds crazy he wants to document it... and trying to run 100 miles through the mountains sounds pretty crazy. Thanks for being such a good subject Ashley!
