Attention marathon fanatics, trainees and wannabes! There will be a special one-night showing of the new movie Spirit of the Marathon II on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 7 p.m. at theaters around the United States. I watched the movie trailer and started crying, so I knew I had to buy my ticket right away!
I loved the first Spirit of the Marathon movie which followed six runners training for and racing the Chicago Marathon. It’s currently available to watch instantly on Netflix and I recommend checking it out if you haven’t seen it already. Then get ready for Spirit of the Marathon II which centers around the Rome Marathon.
For the special event on June 12:
Audiences will be transported to six countries for an intimate “up close and personal” look into the runners’ lives and the challenges they face – both physical and emotional – on an epic journey where finishing the Rome Marathon is anything but certain. The event also features inspirational interviews with marathon greats Stefano Baldini, Paula Radcliffe, Frank Shorter, Kathrine Switzer and others as they offer perspective and insight into this legendary race and its history. This one-night event will include behind-the-scenes interviews, deleted scenes and memorable outtakes from the filming of the documentary.
