Rainshadow Running Presents The Trail Running Film Festival

trail-running-film-festival-bannerI don’t watch a whole lot of movies. In fact, the last two films I have seen in theaters is Frozen and Beauty and the Beast 3D. Yikes. My parents, on the other hand, are movie aficionados. It’s not that I don’t like going to the movies, but there are priorities and if I am spending a couple of hours in a climate controlled dark room, most likely I am going to be falling asleep. But when I heard about the Trail Running Film Festival, put on by Rainshadow Running, that will be coming to the Pacific NW, I think that I could force myself to stay awake.

This film festival will showcase variety of great films and videos that are all about trail running, and be accompanied with live music before and after, as well as beer. It’s as close to a music festival that I will get to for the foreseeable future! March 2014 will feature stops on:
