  • The documentary, a must-see for any runner looking for inspiration, only skirts the reasons why the town of Bekoji seems to provide such an advantage to its young athletes.

  • This isn't a new story, young people having to rely on their athletic prowess to escape lives of poverty while navigating the adversities that life throws in their path. What Rothwell demonstrates is how universal that struggle is.

  • This amazing story might be familiar - it's one of those tales sporadically recycled by the Sunday glossies.

  • So much more than a documentary about Olympic runners, Town of Runners is an introspective eulogy to a way of life.
