Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

It’s been a long journey for the crew of We are Triathletes, but after years of filming, traveling, editing, and promoting, the full-length documentary film is finally screening in a limited number of theaters throughout New Zealand, that could be more so long as tickets are pre booked.  

The film provides an intimate look inside the lives of six pro athletes from four different countries, and shares how each trained and prepared for the 2014 Challenge Roth, the world’s largest long-distance triathlon. But We Are Triathletes is not about a race, instead it delves into the spirit of endurance sport. Three-time Ironman world champion and 2014 Challenge Roth champion Mirinda Carfrae opens up about lost confidence and how she eventually found acceptance in tri; eight-time Ironman champion Luke McKenzie juggles the demands of sport and a new baby; and double above-knee amputee athlete and four-time Paralympian and gold medalist Rudy Garcia-Tolson just never gives up.

To see it, you’ll have to rally your tri troops-if enough tickets are purchased in advance, Demand Media will present the movie in your local theater, starting August 8. A number of theaters throughout NZ have reached the threshold to show the movie while others are very close.
