In 2016, Anchorage RunFest and Bear Tooth Theatrepub screened 2016 Trails in Motion 4, a collection of seven fine films. Each one offered insight into why people choose to run, and showcased some of the planet's most breathtaking trail running destinations in the process. The Anchorage screening was the largest single event TIM has had since the festival's inception in 2013. No surprise there! Anchorage runners love their Alaska trails as well as getting a peek at what the rest of the world has to offer. Bear Tooth sold out for this event so get your tickets early when they are announced in 2017.
