The Secret Marathon - New film being screened at Cinefest in Sudbury
A small group of people will be running from the Running Room in Sudbury this Sunday...to the Silver City Cinemas. When they get to the movie theatre, they're going to watch a film being screened at cinefest. It's called "The Secret Marathon." It's about the challenges faced by women in Afghanistan who were preparing to run in a marathon. Martin Parnell trained with the women featured in the film. He's set five world records for all his running. He's raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity. Martin has since moved out west to Alberta, but will be here this weekend for the screening. He spoke with the CBC's Markus Schwabe.
