Info and tickets
Running the Sahara chronicles an attempt by three ultra marathoners to run across the entire length of Africas Sahara Desert, tackling not only the elements, but also unimaginable physical and emotional obstacles. Their goal is to run through Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Libya, and Egypt, anticipating two marathons per day, for eighty days - without a day off. The expedition spans 4,300 miles (6,920 kilometers) and passes through six countries. Charlie Engle from the United States, Kevin Lin from Taiwan, and Ray Zahab from Canada, have run together in marathons before. But this expedition is different. Its a grueling test of will a story about the human spirit under fire and a chance to accomplish something that no known person has ever achieved.
Running the Sahara premieres at the Admiral Theater on Wednesday, March 10 at 7:30pm. Advance online purchases are available until 4pm PDT on the day of the event and are available at the door for $35. Your ticket includes admission to the screening, a Running the Sahara DVD, and a post film Q & A with ultra runner and film star, Charlie Engle. Charlie will be available to autograph DVD's.
