Final Virtual Trail-Running Film Festival Summer Screening Set for Saturday

When the global pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus began wiping out trail races and ultramarathons in March and April, the organizers of the Trail-Running Film Festival went to work revamping their traveling show for a virtual format. What started as a one-time event in May ultimately grew into a summer-long virtual film festival with a new lineup of films each month.

The final edition of this summer’s Virtual Trail-Running Film Festival takes place live at 8:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, Aug. 8. For those who can’t attend the virtual event, the purchase of a ticket will include access to stream the festival at any time through Aug. 16.

Each month’s lineup has had a theme, and the August theme is Epic films, including the world premiere of a 19-minute film documenting a fastest known time attempt on an alternate rim-to-rim-to-rim route by Jim Walmsley, Tim Freriks and Eric Senseman. The full lineup of films can be found here.

Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased on UltraSignup at this link.

When purchasing a ticket, additional donations may be made to support the festival’s August non-profit benefactor, Backcountry Medical Guides.
