Town of Runners
Stream on Dogwoof.TV:
The world’s best long-distance runners hail from one small town in Ethiopia. See how they do it!
Long distance running is a way of life in the Arsi region of Ethiopia. In a country long associated with poverty, famine and war, world-record-beating athletes are the source of pride. Many of the world’s greatest runners hail from Bekoji, a remote town in the southern Highlands. In the Beijing Olympics, runners from the Bekoji won all four gold medals in the long distance track events - more medals than most industrial countries.
Filmed over four years, the film follows their fortunes as they move from school track to national competition and from childhood to adulthood.
