During the current lockdown, Team #GoodgymRedThunder will be hosting a weekly Adventure Film Watch Party- an opportunity to watch these great free-to-air documentaries together! During these uncertain times, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to get us out the door and finding our own adventures!


"Run For Your Life: The New York Marathon"

Blending archival and contemporary footage with recollections from past champions, recreational participants, volunteers and local politicians, this documentary looks at the life and passion of Fred Lebow, founder of the New York City Marathon.

From extremely humble beginnings -- in 1970, less than 100 people participated in the inaugural 26.2 mile race through the five boroughs -- the race evolves into a global happening, drawing competitors and spectators from all over the world.

"Without one eccentric first-generation Jewish immigrant from Transylvania, the New York City Marathon simply wouldn't exist. Ehrlich's fun, loving, and inspirational tribute to the late Fred Lebow shows how one man's imagination, determination, and love for running created one of the world's most popular sporting events."- Tribeca Film Festival

(Film Duration: 1 hour 35 minutes)
