Bob Anderson will be back in Kansas City and Overland Park next week for the midwest premiere showing of A Long Run at the Glenwood Arts Theater in Overland Park, Thursday April 10 at 7:30 P.M.

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.

Visit for tickets.

After the film, meet Bob Anderson at the Sheraton Hotel at 9 A.M. Friday April 11 for a free Do The Double training run. Get ready for the Double Road Race which is coming to Overland Park June 29.
