Introducing the Athletes

Posted: April 20, 2010 in Women's Running

L-R: Alona Banai, Beth Chenoweth, Wendy Shulik, Claudia Becque, Christina Overbeck

This film is about four women who hope to represent the U.S. at the Olympics: Alona Banai, Beth Chenoweth, Christina Overbeck and Claudia Becque. Beth, Christina and Claudia have all run sub-3:00 hour marathons (Claudia went to the 2008 Trials) and Alona ran a half marathon PR of 1:22 after taking up competitive racing in 2007. They all stand a great chance of qualifying for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Olympic Marathon Team Trials in Houston on January 14, 2012. There is a race in virtually every state on any given weekend and race registrations are selling out in record time, despite our nation’s current economic climate. Unfortunately, running continues to be a “niche” sport and even our elite athletes – particularly the women – still do not get the recognition, financial support or sponsorships that their male counterparts in other sports do. This film is for every woman who has ever put on a pair of running shoes and everyone who knows a female runner.

Please keep coming back to this website for updates on Alona, Claudia, Beth and Christina as they live, work, train, compete and attempt to qualify for the Trials, as well as updates on the production of the film!
