When criminal court Judge Craig Mitchell starts a running club on LA’s notorious Skid Row and begins training a motley group of addicts and criminals to run marathons, lives begin to change. Directed by Mark Hayes, SKID ROW MARATHON follows Judge Mitchell and the members of the Midnight Mission Runners Club over a period of four years. The Judge, who suffers from a painful spinal condition, has been told by his doctors to stop running, but he chooses to ignore their advice. He needs the club and the balance it provides in his life, giving him the opportunity to change the world in a way that he can’t in his own courtroom. If club members stay clean, off the streets and out of jail, the Judge will take them around the world to run marathons. The runners fight the pull of addiction and homelessness at every turn. Not everyone crosses the finish line. Their story is one of hope, friendship and dignity. Winner of over 20 film festival awards including the Audience Awards for Best Documentary Film at the LA Film Festival and Palm Springs International Film Festival, Skid Row Marathon will enjoy a theatrical release at Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena starting March 22, just two days ahead of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. The feature-length documentary was produced by Gabriele Hayes and Doug Blush. Blush is an award-winning producer, editor and director whose credits include 2018 Academy Award Best Documentary Winner Icarus, the 2012 nominee The Invisible War, and the 2013 Oscar Winner 20 Feet From Stardom. Q&A with Judge Craig Mitchell and runners and the filmmakers will follow.
