Spirit of the Marathon



My good friends, Jon Dunham and Melissa Leggett, followed their dreams and made a wonderful film about running.

Spirit of the Marathon is the first ever non-fiction feature film to capture the drama and essence of the famed 26.2 mile running event. Filmed on four continents, the movie brings together a diverse cast of amateur athletes and marathon luminaries.

As six unique stories unfold, each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the Chicago Marathon. More than a sports movie, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph; a spectacle that will be embraced by runners and non-runners alike.

Spirit of the Marathon is set to be released on DVD on October 7th through Image Entertainment and can be pre-ordered on on the website starting September 8th. I'm sure every running and endurance sports fan out there would love to have this film in their stocking over the Holidays!

Director signed DVD's will be offered on the website only, so please, purchase a copy through there...AND a $2.00 discount through Active.com as well.

Like I said in the movie, "When you cross the finish line, it will change your life forever" and so will seeing this movie.
