back in late April when I came across a radio interview with Jerry Rothwell, the director of the new film 'Town of Runners'. The film follows 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. (trailer in the April post). When I looked at the various screenings, there were some in Dublin but none in Cork. So I made some enquiries and the film will now be shown on Wednesday, the 20th of June at 7pm in the Gate Cinema in Cork City.
1) Tickets are available from Mahers Sports from Friday, the 1st of June (Store on Olivier Plunkett St)
2) The tickets are FREE!
3) Should you require more than one ticket, they have a limit of two per person.
4) They will also have a draw on the night for a NIKE GPS watch as well as a couple of other prizes.
So that's it. If you want to watch the film for free on the big screen, go into Mahers Sports and get your ticket asap! Needless to say, if all of the tickets are given away, there will be no access to those just turning up on the night.
