Ledlenser Trails In Motion 8 Film Tour

Prepare to be inspired Rotorua !!! The Ledlenser Trails in Motion 8 Film Tour brings a collection of the finest trail and ultra-running films to passionate audiences. Come along and join like-minded trail runners and adventure sports enthusiasts for a spectacle of running films, coming together to celebrate the diverse culture of this sport. Presenting four richly unique films, the 8th edition of the world tour sets out to highlight the the lives of some of trail and ultra running's most prominent characters, and in the process, sharing not only their deep connection with their local community, but also the challenges they face as they continue to pursue a life guided by the trails. These four inspiring films that will make you love this great community even more! Coming Home - Ag Teacht Abhaile Runtime: 24 minutes Paddy O'Leary grew up in Wexford, Ireland, but didn't discover his love and talent for running until he moved to San Francisco. Now, he is returning to Ireland to take on the fastest known time on the self-navigated 115 kilometer Wicklow Round, and to rediscover his home through the lens of running. Frosty Runtime: 18 minutes On the surface, Anna Frost looks like a competition-driven elite ultra runner having won some of the hardest races in her sport. One would probably think the desire to win is what drives Anna to trail run. To her, trail running is a gateway to connection. Connection to nature. Connection to community. And ultimately, connection to the self. The film will get viewers stoked to learn more about the fabled, “Frosty” yet she is about to go through the hardest challenge of her life, Motherhood. Human Powered Runtime: 24 minutes Every year, trail runners from around the world line up to test themselves at the grueling Finlayson Arm 100km on Vancouver Island. Human Powered looks beyond the finish line, into the community of dedicated volunteers who bring this event to life. LEADMAND | The Dave Mackey Story Runtime: 24 minutes Former Ultrarunner of the Year, Dave Mackey was revered for his toughness well before May of 2015. After a serious trail running accident lead him down a difficult road to recovery, he is back and taking on one of the most grueling tests of endurance, the Leadman — 5 events spanning just 2 months, with the legendary Leadville 100 Mile Ultramarathon as the grand finale. There will be a 10 minute interval, and we will be drawing some rad spot prizes from Ledlenser, Hoka One One and Radix Nutrition after the interval. Ticket Info: Tickets available on-line and on the night at The Harvest Centre (subject to availability and cash only). Grab your mates, grab your tickets, come and grab some trail stoke. If you love trail running, you don't want to miss this!
