Meet Ultra Marathoner Charlie Engle at the Pittsburgh Premiere: Running the Sahara

While I'm in the desert, in Dubai, you all back home can have a desert experience. Check it out. Tonight.

Meet Ultra Marathoner Charlie Engle at the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Premiere of Running the Sahara

Running the Sahara chronicles an attempt by three ultra marathoners to run across the entire length of Africa’s Sahara Desert, tackling not only the elements, but also unimaginable physical and emotional obstacles. Their goal is to run through Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Libya, and Egypt, anticipating two marathons per day, for eighty days - without a day off.

The expedition spans 4,300 miles (6,920 kilometers) and passes through six countries. Charlie Engle from the United States, Kevin Lin from Taiwan, and Ray Zahab from Canada, have run together in marathons before. But this expedition is different. It’s a grueling test of will – a story about the human spirit under fire – and a chance to accomplish something that no known person has ever achieved.

WHEN: Thursday, May 13, 7:00p.m.

WHERE: Southside Works Cinemas, 425 Cinema Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15203

Your ticket includes admission to the screening, virtual swag bag, and a post film Q & A with Ultra Marathoner Charlie Engle. Charlie will be available to sign autographs.
