Release Date Set for the Running Documentary, MY RUN!

A few weeks back I posted about an upcoming documentary, MY RUN, that tells the amazing journey of Terry Hitchcock, a 57-year-old widower and father who ran from his home in St. Paul, Minn. to the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Atlanta, Ga (the equivalent of 75 marathons in 75  days!). MY RUN is directed and produced by Tim VandeSteeg, produced by Mark Castaldo and narrated by Billy Bob Thornton.

Well, I'm excited to announce that Indiewood Pictures and Destiny Pictures have teamed with NCM Fathom to bring the 10-time award-winning documentary MY RUN to theaters across the country on Thursday, March 31 for a one-night premiere event.

Presented in association with the online community ACTIVE.com, Lance Armstrong’s Foundation LIVESTRONG and Life Time Fitness, audiences will be able to embrace the global mission and message of the film, “Be Somebody’s Hero.” A portion of proceeds from the MY RUN Premiere event will benefit the Livestrong Foundation. A list of participating theaters and ticketing information can be found at www.FathomEvents.com/MyRun. MY RUN Premiere event tickets go on sale on Friday, Feb. 18.

Hitchcock’s uplifting underdog story has been garnering steam and is being embraced by all walks of life - families, baby boomers, single parents, cancer organizations as well as runners and marathoners. MY RUN is more than a documentary about a guy running multiple marathons; it’s a documentary about the daily marathons we all run in life.
NCM Fathom is the home of cinematic experiences that offer exclusive, affordable entertainment events broadcast to the big screen. Audiences get the best seat in the house – in the comfort and convenience of the local movie theater – for live and pre-recorded concerts, world-class opera, original programming featuring the biggest names in radio and television, sporting events and music concerts.

That sounds awesome I've love to see it too bad it doesn't seem like it'll be making it's way into Canadian theaters.

Hi Boris! I think it's coming out on DVD sometime after the theatre release.

Really looking forward to this. Same people that produced 'Spirit of the Marathon' too right?

Hi Craig! I believe that was produced by a different set of film makers, but definitely an excellent movie. If you like Spirit of the Marathon, you'll definitely love MY RUN.

Hey Oz! Sorry to hear that man! Maybe you should get a roadtrip with some fellow running buddies and head to the nearest city showing it....or wait for the DVD soon to follow.
