A couple guys from Kansas City have been working on a documentary film called “River Ties,” and it’s worth watching if you’re a lover of the water, trails, road trips, compelling characters, or any outdoor activity.
It’s a film about a group of friends who have been meeting up to raft rivers for about 30 years, and it’s about the bonds that bind this group together.
As a trail-runner, I see deep similarities between this group and the friends that I travel to races with. I know runners who do races such as 3 Days of Syllamo, Superior Sawtooth, and the Ozark Trail 100 every year, and their reasons seem to be as much about the family reunion atmosphere as they are about the running.
Here’s the trailer. Please check it out.
There’s also a campaign on indiegogo.com to help the producers fund the final trip to complete the film. If you feel so inclined, the fundraising activities are at this link:
