"UNBREAKABLE": The Western States 100 WORLD PREMIERE
Friday, December 2, 2011; Sports Basement Presidio in San Francisco; Tickets $5
(San Francisco, CA) – A special world premiere screening of 'Unbreakable: The Western States 100', the documentary of the inhuman and fabled Northern California ultra marathon challenge of The Western States 100 Mile Race, will be shown at Sports Basement Presidio on Friday, December 2. In attendance at the screening will be the film’s director, JB Benna, and three of the four runners that competed for the title – Geoff Roes, Hal Koerner and Anton Krupicka. Tickets are $5.
'Unbreakable: The Western States 100' follows four undefeated mountain runners on an amazing journey as they attempt the Western States 100-mile endurance run, the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world. Though all four are undefeated, three must break and only one can remain Unbreakable. A win will require breaking the course record and running the fastest time in the history of the race.
An epic showdown ensues throughout Northern California, from Squaw Valley, CA in Lake Tahoe, up though the high snow covered Sierra Nevada Mountains, down through the extreme heat of the American River Canyons and finishing in Auburn, CA.
The four runners and stars of the film are, Hal Koerner, two-time defending Western States champion, and running store entrepreneur from Ashland, Oregon. Geoff Roes, undefeated at the 100-mile distance, an organic chef from Juneau, Alaska. And Anton Krupicka, undefeated in every ultramarathon he has ever started, a graduate student living in Boulder, Colorado. Kilian Jornet, the young mountain runner and two-time Ultra-trail du Mont-Blanc champion, from Spain.
The screening takes place on the eve of the North Face Endurance Challenge, which Roes and Koerner will be running.
