Black tie and red carpet...probably not!

Some of you may have heard of Dean Karnazes, some of you might know his book Ultramarathon Man; Confessions of an All-night Runner and some may have heard of the 50 Marathon:50 States:50 Days that he completed in 2006, well what you might not know is that J.B Benna followed Dean and made a documentary about this feat…and I am going to it's premiere!

Well ok I had to buy the tickets but, there were only 25 for sale and I got two of them. According to the website: What’s included in the price of your ticket:

Get pumped…

  • You will be the first ever to see this feature length documentary about Dean Karnazes Endurance 50 event
  • Deluxe swag bags with North Face gear, Journeyfilm products, Accelerade, and organic Nature’s Path treats
  • There will be a Question and Answer session right after the film with Director J.B. Benna and UltraMarathon Man Dean Karnazes

Here’s your chance to meet the filmmakers and Dean and get the behind the scenes scoop.

So not only do I get to see the film, but there's Q&A, swag and a chance of an autograph! Anyone who subscribes to the ultralist or has heard Scott Jurek's interview will realize that Dean Karnazes is a controversial figure within the ultrarunning community, personally I'll reserve judgment on his character and admire his feats.
