Attn: Running Clubs of New England (and beyond?)

We are now a month away from the Mount Washington Road Race official lottery drawing! That's right, the race to the clouds has such an impressive following that you have to first compete with luck via a lottery number system to enter the race. Registration for this race opens next week! Wednesday! February 15, 2012! Circle that date on your calendar...the lottery closes March 15 and the drawing takes place on the 16th.

In the mean time, I wonder if you might like to screen a viewing of RUNNING THE ROCKPILE for your club? Many of your club-mates are hoping for a lucky entry into the race and are not only training for 5K, 10K, half or marathon distances, but also looking ahead to June to climb New England's tallest peak. You're all big fans of grabbing a beer after your weekly club runs, how about a 22-minute film screening with the possibility of the filmmaker joining!

I made this film to examine the phenomena of mountain running and my greatest hope has been to get it into the hands (or feet?) of those who inspired the project: you, the runner! So, if this sounds like something your club would be interested, please email me kitchentabledocs@gmail.com and let's set a date!
