Town of Runners is a new film following the lives of two young athletes in the small town of Bekoji in Ethiopia. Perhaps like it's Kenyan equivalent of Iten, this Ethiopian town is noted for having produced many of that countries world class athletes.
This film was screened in the UK and in Dublin recently but there was no showing of it in Cork. With that in mind, I made a few enquiries and am now able to confirm that the Gate Cinema in Cork City will be screening it thanks to Mahers Sports. The show will be on at 7pm on Wednesday, the 20th of June. (approx 90 mins)
1) It doesn't clash with any football fixture in the European Championships!
2) I don't know what the cost will be but it's likely to be cheap.
3) Tickets......to be decided.
Considering that this has never been done before, it's hard to guess what the demand might be like. Should it be on in a large or small cinema? So to help gauge interest, you might complete the poll on the right hand side. Just click on the Yes button if you are interested in going.
