Running (1979) (with Michael Douglas)

Without Limits (1998) (the other Prefontaine biopic)

Plus (more loosely) some films with lots of running in them:

Marathon Man (1976)

The Running Man (1987)

Forrest Gump (1994)

Run Lola Run (1998)

Skyfall (2012)

every Mission Impossible film

Leni Riefenstahl's "documentary" Olympia (1938), of course, features various übermenschen engaged in a variety of track and field events, usually filmed from a low camera angle (the better to monumentalize/idealize them)
