This past June, 72-year-old Wally Hesseltine ran the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run. He was set to be the race’s oldest finisher ever since its start in 1974. “Thirty Hours,” a 12-minute documentary directed by Alex Massey, showcases Hesseltine’s training leading up to the race, the race day itself and his unforgettable finish as he stumbled onto the Placer High School track with 400 meters to run and 2 minutes left on the clock.
