Endurance trail-running and ultra-marathons are grueling activities, which often defy the beautiful landscapes surrounding the athletes. The Burning River Film Festival will return to the Akron Civic Theatre, Sunday, Oct. 22, and features short and feature length films that showcase endurance and ultra-running, including the stories behind the athletes and their motivation for pursuing these grueling races.
The festival begins at 6 p.m. (doors open at 4 p.m.), and the gathering will include vendors, speakers, live music, art, merchandise and other attractions, with an emphasis on community and celebrating those individuals and organizations that give back.
Ticket prices are $16 for general admission and available at the Akron Civic Theatre Box Office, by calling (330) 253-2488 or online at , or TicketMaster – (800) 745-3000. The full schedule is available at .
