Town of Runners DVD


- +


All DVD/Blu-ray releases are Region 2/B

The world's best long-distance runners hail from one small town in Ethiopia. See how they do it! Long distance running is a way of life in the Arsi region of Ethiopia. In a country long associated with poverty, famine and war, world-record-beating athletes are the source of pride. Many of the world’s greatest runners hail from Bekoji, a remote town in the southern Highlands. In the Beijing Olympics, runners from the Bekoji won all four gold medals in the long distance track events - more medals than most industrial countries. Filmed over four years, the film follows their fortunes as they move from school track to national competition and from childhood to adulthood.
