About The Film

 

Long-distance running allowed Wesley Korir to escape the grinding poverty of Kenya. But after winning multiple American marathons, including taking running’s most cherished prize – the Boston Marathon, he risks it all and returns home to help his fellow Kenyans create better lives for themselves. In what proves to be the most challenging race of his career, Wesley takes on a well-financed, big-party candidate to run for a seat

in Kenyan parliament, attempting to balance the frenzy of campaigning with the demands of marathon training. 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 the marathon.

Support The Cause

 

Wesley’s life was changed by earning a scholarship to study and train in America. Inspired by Wesley’s ceaseless efforts to improve life in Kenya, we have made it our goal to help promising young runners in Kenya get the training and education they need to follow in Wesley’s footsteps. Donations made to Wesley’s charitable organization, The Kenyan Kids Foundation will support school and training fees for young athletes in Kenya. Donations over $20 will receive a charitable receipt.
