Presented by Heart of the Valley Runners, the Trail Running Film Festival will take place this Thursday at the Whiteside Theatre. The festival will showcase films focusing on the value and resilience of trail running. 

Heart of the Valley Runners is a local group that aims to provide a diverse group of trail runners with a sense of community and support. Part of this goal includes presenting and hosting various social events, including upcoming group runs and local races, which can be found on their website. 

The Trail Running Film Festival strives for similar goals. According to their mission statement, the event seeks to “celebrate running as a universal practice to explore our collective and individual potential,”  achieving this by “documenting the culture of trail running, supporting filmmakers and creatives, and hosting events that bring our community together.” 

Both Heart of the Valley Runners and the Trail Running Film Festival value inclusivity and camaraderie in the running community. Whiteside Theatre is located at 361 SW Madison Ave. in downtown Corvallis.

Admission tickets for the Trail Running Film Festival are $10 and the showing will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
