Quarter Century Club Supports The Boston Marathon Film

THE STORY:

The QCC (Quarter Century Club) is a small and unique group of marathoners who have run 25 or more Boston Marathons in a row.  I'll be running my 37th Boston in a row in 2016, and I'm honored to be part of this group.

With the excitement and buzz building in the running community around the Boston Marathon Film due out during the 2017 Boston Marathon, and the potential for some QCC members to be included, one aspect of the successful completion of this film is still needed—funding. The film company is a small independent film company operating on a very lean budget. Gerard has worked with them on and off for the past two years, including attempts to get investors involved. Alas, getting investors excited about a documentary about running, especially if they aren't runners, is very difficult. 

So the idea was conceived to create a crowdfunding mechanism and draw on the strength of the grass roots component of the running community, namely, running clubs. While the QCC is not the traditional type of running club, Boston is integral to our existence and we to the history of this great race, and thus to the making of this film. It would be a shame if this film could not get made in the quality it deserves due to budgetary constraints.
