This 76 year old marathon runner lives in an old school bus in the forest


Vancouver filmmakers Justin Pelletier and Adam Maruniak have released a short film we recommend you spend the next 14 minutes with.

‘Never Die Easy: The Dag Aabye Story’ was released under their company Brick Films. It’s a journey to find an elusive marathon runner living off the grid, halfway up Silver Star mountain near Vernon B.C..

At 76 years old, Dag is apparently known as “the founding father of freestyle skiing”. In the film we’re given some insight into his inspiring life through a series of interviews with acquaintances, a journalist and the man himself.
