Courtney Dauwalter has established herself as one of the best ultrarunners — male or female — of all time. She has been named one of the 50 Fittest Athletes in the World by Sports Illustrated and a two-time Ultrarunner of the Year. She won the 2017 Moab 240 by 10 hours (ahead of all men and women) and the women’s division of 2018 the Western States 100, broke the Tahoe 200 female course record in 2018 by 18+ hours, claimed the fastest female time at the 2019 UTMB, and won the 2020 Big Dog Backyard Ultra by running 283 miles (more than all men and women competitors). Gain an inside look at how she does it in this documentary film that explores her source of will. How does the candy-loving, beer drinking athlete crush 200+ mile races, in some cases, beating all the men and the women? “The Source” from Dream Lens Media gives viewers a front row seat as Courtney races the Tahoe 200.
