Video:Further - Running the Length of Haiti

Last year, long distance runner Tassy Fils-Aime set off to run 240 miles (386 km) across the length of Haiti, something that had never been done before. Along the way, he faced numerous challenges of course, not the least of which was the daily distances he had to put in just to complete the run in a reasonably quick time. Fast forward to 2016, and Tassy and his team have now opened up the running challenge to the general public too. This video takes us along on that grueling event, and gives us a chance to see what it is like to travel across the Caribbean country on foot, interacting with the landscapes and locals along the way.
