The San Quentin 1000 Mile Running Club is comprised of a mixed age, race, and ethnicity set of inmates at California’s historical San Quentin State Prison. The men, who are serving time for anything from drug possession to first degree murder, find temporary solace in long distance running. They are coached by runner Franklin Ruona, who comes in from the outside and with a small set of other supportive running coaches, volunteer time to help these men train for their annual marathon. Laps is a film that captures a regular training day in the recreation yard.
