Get In The Marathon Spirit Tonight

The feature film "Spirit of the Marathon" is screening tonight 8pm in the INCO Innovation Center at MUN.
"It is the first film to capture the story, drama and ultimate essence of the legendary 26.2 mile running event. Filmed globally in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, the movie brings together a diverse cast of amateur athletes and marathon luminaries. 
As the six unique stories unfold, each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the Chicago Marathon. More than a sports movie, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph; a spectacle that will be embraced by runners and non-runners alike. 
Spirit of the Marathon was the winner of both the Best Picture Award at the Mammoth Film Festival and the Audience Choice Award at the Chicago Film Festival. It is a great running story!"
Besides getting your money’s worth with a truly inspiring film, there is another great reason to attend! All proceeds from the showing will help establish scholarships for the cross-country running team at Memorial.

$10 single or $25 family rate (cash only please).
