Spirit of the Marathon II: Rome

From the film-makers who created the award-winning documentary Spirit of the Marathon, the sequel is visually even richer, its stories even more inspirational, and its music even more memorable.

It follows seven real-life runners on their journey through the spectacular streets of Rome. It puts their dedication to running in the context of real human lives, some with more than a touch of tragedy. The runners are of all levels of ability, and live in Rome, Rwanda, New Jersey, California, and Ukraine. The film explores their lives in all those locations, plus footage shot specially in Ethiopia, New York, and other iconic marathon locations.

For the Rome Marathon itself, unique camera access puts the viewer right into the race, sharing the marathon experience in a way only the first Spirit has ever before achieved on screen.

The stories of the modern running boom, the transformative rise of women’s running, and the role of Italy and Rome in marathon history are explored through interviews with marathon greats like Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter, Paula Radcliffe, Stefano Baldini, Haile Gebrselassie, and the late Grete Waitz; and with legends and experts like women’s running pioneer Kathrine Switzer and distinguished author Roger Robinson, who will both be present at the Empire State Marathon screenings to introduce the film.

Spirit of the Marathon II has already been acclaimed as “the best running film ever made” (Running Times).
