Merrell Presents ‘This Land’

“I want everyone to be able to see someone who looks like them outside doing something they love and I want them to be inspired to do the same thing.” – Faith E. Briggs                            Credit: Michael A. Estrada

The short film ‘This Land’ features runner and advocate Faith E. Briggs who used to run through the streets of Brooklyn every morning. Now, she’s running 150 miles through three U.S. National Monuments that lay in the thick of the controversy around public lands. Accompanied by running companions who represent diverse perspectives in what it means to be a public land owner, she assesses what is at stake if previously protected lands are reduced and if the public is largely unaware.

‘This Land’ is a story about land access told through a journey of inclusion and empowerment. The film was created by an all-female film team including two first-time directors – Whit Hassett and Chelsea Jolly. Faith is known within the outdoor and community for inspiring others to spend more time outside and redefine what outdoor means through a lens of equity and inclusion.

Why Merrell? Simple. As the footwear brand puts it – ‘We believe the trail is for everyone.’
