Extreme Sports Sports & Fitness The Secret Marathon News

After sold-out shows at the film’s festival premieres, THE SECRET MARATHON is debuting globally at the end of the month on Demand Film. Following Guinness World Record marathoner Martin Parnell and filmmaker/first time marathoner Kate McKenzie as they journey from Canada to support the first Afghan woman who ran in the Marathon of Afghanistan, this film tells a powerful story of equality and determination against all odds.

The Secret Marathon

The Secret Marathon centres on the first Afghan woman who stood up for her freedom and ran in the Marathon of Afghanistan, in doing so she started a movement for equality that spread around the world. Zainab’s story inspired legendary marathon runner, Martin Parnell, to imagine what his life might be like if his gender prevented him from going outside to run. Martin vowed to run in the Marathon of Afghanistan the following year to support Zainab, and partnered with filmmaker and first time marathoner, Kate McKenzie, to tell the story. To avoid making the marathon a target for terrorist attack, they train, and travel to Afghanistan in secret and uncover unexpected beauty, incredible hardships, and amazing people who stand for change.
