Town of Runners

June 1 @ 9:00 PM - 10:25 PM

Jerry Rothwell | Ethiopia | 2012 | 86 min

The world’s best long-distance runners hail from one small town in Ethiopia. In a country long associated with poverty, famine and war, world-record-beating athletes are the source of pride. Many of the world’s greatest runners hail from Bekoji, a remote town in the southern Highlands. In the Beijing Olympics, runners from Bekoji won all four gold medals in the long distance track events – more medals than most industrial countries.
