New York, NY, February 27, 2009 --( Beyond the Epic Run, the inspiring true story of ultra runner, Serge, and his wife Nicole Roetheli, who sold all of their belongings to run more than 25,000 miles around the world, will be screened at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 2, 2009 at New York City’s Anthology Film Archives. This screening is one of 14 to take place in major running-communities across the nation. Producer/Director Thomas Sammon will be present to introduce the film and lead a post-screening Q and A.

Beginning their epic journey in February 2000, Serge Roetheli ran across six continents, through 37 countries, with his wife, Nicole, acting as sole crew support following behind him, at an average of 7 ½ mph, on a Yamaha motorcycle and filming every step. According to Serge, I ran to be free, to help the children in suffering parts of the world and to have an incredible journey. I hope that people will take away from the film that nothing is impossible as long as you are willing to the pay the price for your dream, he said.
