BEER RUNNERS movie screening
See the award winning documentary about the Fishtown Beer Runners. Beer Runners has become a global movement with over 75 chapters worldwide.
If you've run with us before and don't know the story here's the easiest explanation... of everything from the origins, The Professor, No Questions Asked. You'll be seeing the movie with people in the movie, including Founder David April and Mark McCowan, who's Bookin' for Lookin' Foundation will benefit from proceeds of this screening.
In keeping with the Beer Runners MO, we will meet to run (a little earlier than normal) at 6:45PM in front of the Theater and run the 5K course for Bookin For Lookin' (possibly backwards).
When you return, the theater serves beer! A portion of beer sales will also go to Bookin' for Lookin'
Sales stop during the screening (so order early and often)
We will conduct the toast at 7:35PM and the movie will air beginning immediately after:
All in attendance will also receive a copy of the film on DVD for home viewing
After enduring a personal struggle, David April began to search for positive ways to heal himself. Running became his medicine, and that outlet grew into a community where people support and encourage the success of others. Inspired by a Spanish professor's groundbreaking scientific study proving that drinking a beer after a run can hydrate the body better than water, David founded the 'Fishtown Beer Runners.' The Philadelphia based club runs five to ten kilometers every week, ending up at a different bar, where they have a couple of beers and toast to 'The Professor.' David's journey has not only helped others turn their lives around, it has influenced an international beer running movement in Spain, promoting responsible consumption and exercise
