[9/26] Breaking2 Documentary Screening

  • Philadelphia Runner University City 3621 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

On Saturday, May 6, at 5:45 a.m. in Monza, Italy, three men (Eliud Kipchoge, Zersenay Tadese and Lelisa Desisa) raced around the Autodromo Nazionale Monza complex’s fixed 2.4-km loop. They were chasing down the elusive 1:59:59 marathon, a monster challenge that was years in the making.

The athletes’ epic journeys — from being invited to join the team, to going through tests in wind tunnels and sports labs, and their day-to-day lives in eastern Africa, right through crossing the finish line — are chronicled in “Breaking2,” a one-hour documentary special produced by National Geographic Studios as part of a co-production partnership with Nike. The film uncovers the power of human potential and explores the emotional journey that bonded these three super-athletes as they gave their all to try to make the impossible possible.

Join us for a screening of Breaking2 and Nike Project 101 (featuring some of our staff!) on Tuesday, September 26th in our University City shop. The movie will start promptly at 7PM, please be on time or stop by a little early!
