A Long Run chronicles Bob's 50 races covering 350 miles at 7 min pace, Bob's 50 years of running, thinking about running, writing about running, and promoting running, including creation of Runners World Magazine and the Double Road Race Federation.
A Long Run tells one man's story, but it's every runner's journey. Bob Anderson's amazing life connects us to icons like Bill Rodgers, Billy Mills and Paula Radcliffe but also to the low-budget thrill of a community 5K. The gorgeous cinematography captures The Avenue of the Giants, the San Francisco landscapes and the vistas of Fort Bragg. And the smoothly intertwined stories - his 50-race challenge, the magazine, the running boom - are handled with Olympic-caliber pacing.
After the film they will have a Q&A panel discussion with Bob Anderson, race director Bruce Gilbert and several key people who shape the sport of Running.
