An Evening of Adventure and Ultrarunning: Journey Film’s Unbreakable and The Long Haul
Date: Thursday, June 25 at 7pm
Join Reno local JB Benna and the Donner Party Mountain Runners for an evening of ultrarunning films! $10 tickets.
The Long Haul chronicles a continuous four-day FKT (fastest known time) of the 223-mile John Muir Trail by ultrarunners Mike Wolfe and Hal Koerner. Witness the mental and physical toll the pair endure as they travel up and down 80,000 feet of rugged Sierra Nevada wilderness. Learn the storied history of this grueling feat and behold the beauty and purity of the Sierra Nevada mountains through the eyes of two amazing athletes.
Unbreakable documents the amazing journey of the four leading contenders at the 2010 Western States 100 Endurance Run. While their lives are different, the goal is the same: to win the most famous 100-mile trail race in North America. A win will require breaking the course record and running the fastest time in the history of the race. Witness an epic showdown that plays out over the 100-mile distance from Squaw Valley, through the snow-covered Sierras and down through the extreme heat of the American River Canyon to Auburn.
