The Nittany Valley Running Club has secured a location to show BOSTON - the documentary on January 4th.
The catch is we need people to reserve tickets to see it now so that it'll actually happen.
A little background about the documentary - BOSTON is the first ever feature-length documentary film about the world’s most legendary running race – the Boston Marathon.
The film chronicles the story of the iconic race from its humble origins starting with only 15 runners to the present day. In addition to highlighting the event as the oldest annually contested marathon in the world, the film showcases many of the most important moments in more than a century of the race’s history. Evolving from a working man’s challenge to welcoming foreign athletes and eventually women, Boston becomes the stage for many firsts and in no small part the event that paved the way for the modern marathon and mass participatory sports. Here is the promo video for the film. The film is narrated by Matt Damon. https://vimeo.com/225479641
