“In the High Country”- New Zealand Premier

High-Country-VERTICAL-poster-199x300Backcountry Runner is very excited to present the New Zealand Premier of “In the High Country”.

“In the High Country will be a new kind of mountain/ running film featuring Anton Krupicka. Filmed and Produced by Joel Wolpert with the support of Ultimate Direction, this won’t be the usual running film – no “loneliness of the long distance runner” – “High Country” will take you where you’ve never been before.” – Buzz Burrell, Ultimate Direction.

In addition to screening “In the High Country”, Ultimate Direction supported runner Vajin Armstrong, who will present a talk/slide show on his recent trip to Europe, where he raced at the highest level, with podium’s in several races.

You can buy your tickets for the NZ premier of “In the High Country” on-line from the Backcountry Runner Trail Shop HERE. There will also be door sales on the night, but the venue is limited to 50.
