Trail movie night

Norway's largest ultra race, Ecotrail Oslo, teams up for a movie night.

Time and Date: 7PM, March 3rd
Location: Salt (A.K.A our finisher area)
Bar: Beer, glutenfree beer and mineral water.

What drives people to participate in ultra races, and why has "trail" become so popular?

We want to make the ultra environment visible, both Norwegian and international.

And then not just runners and adventurers, but also organizers and volunteers.

Because through running, connections are made to the local community.

After the movies there will be an Q&A with the first Norwegian ever to be participating in The Barkley Marathons, also known as the toughest and most outstanding race in the world. 

These are the films on March 3rd, licensed from Trails In Motion - The World´s Trail Running Film Tour:

Paddy O'Leary grew up in Wexford, Ireland, but didn't discover his love and talent for running until he moved to San Francisco. Now, he is returning to Ireland to take on the fastest known time on the self-navigated 115 kilometer Wicklow Round, and to rediscover his home through the lens of running.


Runtime: 18 minutes

Produced by: Merrell / Q Media

On the surface, Anna Frost looks like a competition-driven elite ultra runner having won some of the hardest races in her sport. One would probably think the desire to win is what drives Anna to trail run. To her, trail running is a gateway to connection. Connection to nature. Connection to community. And ultimately, connection to the self. The film will get viewers stoked to learn more about the fabled, “Frosty” yet she is about to go through the hardest challenge of her life, Motherhood.
