Releasing in 2022, 'MOLINARO' charts the journey of amateur turned professional runner Carla Molinaro as she navigates the world of professional running, having achieved her newfound success late in life.
Following on from her Gold medal achievement at the illustrious (and oldest) Ultra-marathon Comrades.
However Carla's attempts for back to back to medals are thrown into turmoil when she suffers a stress fracture in her foot and she's forced to rehabilitate herself in time for the 2019 Comrades, (the last before the global pandemic would shut down the world and indeed the race for two years).
Her story is one of determination and grit, as she reflects on what drew her to running as well as her future place in an industry that expects you to place.
