FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SCREENING!

Preceded by 'A Sum of The Parts" - a short featuring the largest multi-sport team relay race in the country (Ski to Sea) and one team's unique experience. Filmed in 2017 right here in our own backyard.

The Mountain Runners is the story of America's first mountain endurance/adventure foot race, which took place in Bellingham. First run in 1911, the grueling 28 to 32 mile race to the glacial summit of Mount Baker and back utilized steam trains and modified model T autos and lasted only three years due to its intrepid dangers. Told in a docudrama style, the film incorporates historic images, archival film, visual effects, and dramatizations staring William B. Davis (X-Files, Smoking man.) The film is narrated by Kevin Tighe (Lost, Emergency, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape) and is supported by a cast of Cascadian historians, descendants of race participants and world-renowned experts in their field.
