The Speed Project (TSP) is a 340-mile unsanctioned race from Santa Monica Pier to Las Vegas. It lives and dies by the motto: No Rules, No Spectators. Historically, a relay race, in 2021 TSP offered up the chance for individual runners to make the journey from LA to Sin City. The winner took 118 hours. SOLIS follows The North Face Explorer Team runner James Poole’s 2022 attempt to run self-supported over Mount Baldy, survive the blazing heat of Death Valley, and make it to the finish at the famous Welcome to Vegas sign.
