This sounds somethins like a 1981 short (12 minutes), "Survival Run", from
Pyramid Media (http://www.pyramidmedia.com)

Pyramid's description:

"This masterfully executed film features blind marathon runner, Harry
Cordellos, who runs the difficult Dipsea course through the majestic
country near San Francisco guided only the voice and arm of his sighted
partner. Beautifully photographed, Survival Run is an inspiring study of
courage, trust and determination. It is an unforgettable study of a highly
motivated team that overcomes seemingly insurmountable limitations and
risks to achieve their goal."

Purchase price is $295. Hope this helps.
