Endurance, personal discovery, adventure, community, even conservation are central to the theme of the 2016 Trails In Motion 4 line up. Each film offers new insight into why people choose to run, showcasing some of the planet’s most breathtaking trail running destinations in the process.
Seven films will be featured at the Inaugural Trails in Motion Big Day Out Trail Running Festival in Boulder, CO on Saturday, September 10th at the Foothills Community Park and Shining Mountain Waldorf School just east of the park. Many of the films have ties to Colorado and local runners like Scott Jaime, previous Boulder resident Krissy Moehl and of course the striking terrain of the Hardrock 100 trail race.
The Big Day Out Trail Running Festival will start at 3pm at the park and will include trail shoe demos from a variety of top brands, pop-up expo, breakout speaker sessions, local craft beer and food, a kid’s fun run, and gear giveaways.
The films will be shown at the Shining Mountain Waldorf School just east of the park starting at 7pm.
From the trail newbie looking to learn more about the sport to the trail enthusiasts, there is something for everyone and these inspirational stories will motivate you to want to get outside and explore.
