Stream These Running Movies in 2023

We love a good running movie.

Why? The struggle, the emotion, and the success (or failures) all seem so relatable.

Running is one of those sports that most people try at least once in their lives, even if it’s “just” the 1 mile Presidental Fitness test from middle school.

But less than 1% of the US population has completed a marathon. If that’s you: you’re kinda a big deal!

If that’s *going* to be you, and you’re looking for some movie inspiration as you train on the treadmill, we’ve got the perfect list of running movies you can stream now.

Check out these sports movies: they’ve got it all from true crime to a true love story, and everything in between that happens in the sports world.
