Town of Runners
Director: Jerry Rothwell
Produced by Met Film Productions
Town of Runners is a feature documentary about young runners from Bekoji, a remote town in the southern Ethiopian Highlands which has produced some of the world's greatest distance athletes, including Tirunesh Dibaba, Kenenisa Bekele and Derartu Tulu.
This 2-minute trailer provides an insight into the role of long distance running in Bekoji. In the Beijing Olympics, runners from Bekoji won all four gold medals in the long distance track events – more medals than most industrial countries.
