We Are Triathletes film arrives in UK
It’s not often a triathlon film hits the cinemas, but that’s all set to change next month when the We Are Triathletes documentary arrives in the UK. But the screenings will only be confirmed if enough tickets are bought before the deadline of 5pm on Sunday 2nd September.
The film provides an insight into the lives of six pro athletes from four different countries, and shares how each trained and prepared for the 2014 edition of Challenge Roth, the world’s biggest long-distance triathlon with 200,000+ spectators and our greatest triathlon in the world.
We Are Triathletes will delve into the spirit of endurance sport, with candid interviews from 2014 Challenge Roth champion Mirinda Carfrae; eight-time Ironman champion Luke McKenzie; and double above-knee amputee athlete and four-time Paralympian and gold medalist Rudy Garcia-Tolson.
The film also features interviews with Ironman legends John and Judy Collins, Julie Moss, Kathleen McCartney, Scott Tinley, Dave Scott, and Mark Allen.
The documentary is produced and directed by Yanfeng Zhang and co-produced by Gwendolen Twist (producer of Spirit of the Marathon). It has already been handed the Award of Excellence by the Accolade Global Film Competition.
The film will be screened at the following locations, but triathletes will need to book tickets before 5pm on Sunday afternoon to be assured that the screenings will go ahead. The full screening list is below and tickets can be booked here: uk.demand.film/we-are-triathletes/
