Join us for the east coast premiere of the film, followed by a Q&A with the director Ethan Newberry AKA The Ginger Runner, and athlete Brian Morrison.
In 2006, Brian Morrison was winning the Western States 100 by 20 minutes. When he arrived at the track in Auburn, his body gave out on him and he began to collapse within feet from the finish line. With the assistance of his crew, he was helped across the finish. As a result he received a "Did Not Finish" for not being able to complete the entire course under his own power. After 10 years, Brian returned to Western States in hopes of finally earning the coveted 100 mile buckle and putting to rest the unfortunate history at the race.
