We are excited to be hosting the Seattle premiere of the award-winning documentary, 'The Mountain Runners'. Q&A will follow the screening, featuring at least one of the two directors, Todd Warger and Brian Young. There will be two screenings on Thursday, December 6 and Friday, December 7; both screenings will begin at 8 pm. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to fund the Seattle Running Club.
About the documentary:
From 1911 to 1913, a legitimately "amazing race" was run. Envious of the tourists flocking to Seattle, the civic leaders of fledgling Bellingham devised an elaborate PR stunt: America’s first mountain adventure race. Offering up $100 in gold coins to the first runner who could clamber up and down nearby Mount Baker, a 10,781 foot volcanic, glacial peak! They attracted 14 contestants consisting of wrestlers, milk inspectors, loggers, farmers and miners.
