Run Nation Film Festival discount for parkrunners


The Run Nation Film Festival provides an excellent opportunity to get social with your fellow parkrunners. Whether you get a group together or go solo and make new friends, you don’t want to miss out. Run Nation has selected the very best running films to leave your heart pounding and your mind mesmerised


Presented by Travelling Fit, the 2017 collection of original short films will focus on human-interest stories that use running as the medium of storytelling.


What is the why that makes these people push themselves to their physical limits and strive to be at the top of their game? Two hours of heart-pounding races – you won’t break a sweat, but you may wipe a tear


From the elite experience through to ‘back of the pack’ runners, you’ll live the good, the bad and the painful. Because it’s more than just trails and tracks, roads and ultras; these are films that will inspire us all to pull on our sneakers and pound the pavement. Real life stories with heart, soul and passion that will leave you thinking, talking and dreaming.


The Festival has a few cities left to visit and we’re looking for runners and fans to join in and celebrate:
