Thought I would post this again as a reminder. Hopefully I we see some of you tonight in Denver. Come on up and say hi; I will be there with a few friends from the Gunnison scene. Howdy all again! Here is some info about the movie/documentary: ‘Beyond the Epic Run’. This looks really cool to me; and the ultra-world in general. Check out the info below about the film; and the info about the special showing in Denver, CO; next Thursday, April 9th, 2009 at 7:30 pm.
Here is the ‘about the film’:
“Beyond the Epic Run” is a feature length documentary reality film about a Swiss couple who live their dream to run around the world. Together, Serge and Nicole Roetheli leave on an epic adventure that leads them out of Europe, through Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the United States, testing their boundaries, strengthening their minds and challenging their bodies. Running the equivalent of a marathon every other day, Serge the endurance sports runner runs nearly 25,400 miles in five years while wife, Nicole, using their personal camera as she rides her Yamaha motorcycle, captures the footage used in this film. Excerpts from her personal diary reveal experiences and accomplishments throughout their journey together.
Serge ran more than 25,000 miles over five years with Nicole behind him. They traveled through 37 counties on six continents. While they were running through Africa, they both caught Malaria and almost died, but Serge and Nicole kept on tuckin’. It’s an amazing story of an athlete –and a loving wife’s–physical and mental strength. They risked everything for this experience. Very inspiring for anyone trying to overcome any challenge! Check out this video of Dean Karnazes talking about the film: ‘Beyond the Epic Run’.
