Join us on Tuesday, December 9th for the Kingston showing of the film Transcend.
“Long-distance running allowed Wesley Korir to escape the grinding poverty of Kenya. But after winning multiple American marathons, including taking running’s most cherished prize – the Boston Marathon, he risks it all and returns home to help his fellow Kenyans create better lives for themselves. In what proves to be the most challenging race of his career, Wesley takes on a well-financed, big-party candidate to run for a seat in Kenyan parliament, attempting to balance the frenzy of campaigning with the demands of marathon training. Transcend is the story of the elusive spiritual energy that is somehow forged in the intense rigor of long-distance running, an energy Wesley Korir is using to transform the nation that has done more than any other to change the face of the marathon.”
Join us at the KCVI auditorium at 7pm on Dec 9th for the film and a special session with film maker Michael DelMonte.
Tickets are just $10 ($12 at the door) and are available at Runners’ Choice.
