Film Screening Just For New Years Double Participants
in a Partnership with Cinemark Theatres

We’re happy to add a special event to an already awesome weekend of events for  the participants in the New Years Double! Race participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a free screening of the movie Spirit of the Marathon on New Year’s Eve. In the film, six unique stories unfold, as each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the marathon. More than a sports movie, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph that both runners and non-runners can embrace.

Meet the Athletes...

Cinemark Theatres is a proud sponsor of the New Years Double and committed to supporting a healthy lifestyle in its employees and the community. As part of that commitment, Cinemark will play Spirit of the Marathon on December 31st at 4 pm in one theater at its Cinemark Allen 16, located at Watters Dr and State Highway 121 in Allen, Texas.

This promises to add another fun element to the weekend as many participants, both local and from out of town, take on the challenge of a race New Year’s Eve morning, followed by a race New Year’s Day morning. It’s a chance for runners to celebrate the active lifestyle together and get inspired for the run ahead of them the next day!


While there are 2,000 registrations for the New Years Double events, there are only 250 seats in the theater. To claim a seat, New Years Double participants must

1. Email with whether the participant would like to reserve one seat or two seats (each participant is allowed a max of one guest). Emails without the name of the registrant stated in the email or that do not state the number of tickets requested WILL be ignored.

2. The race will confirm your entry into the screening. Once the seats are all claimed, no more will be available.

3. Participants claiming a seat must pick up their packets Thursday or Friday race week, and there will be a movie voucher for the screening in their packet. Tickets will not be available for pickup Saturday morning at the race site OR at the screening itself.

Thank You to Cinemark for Their Support of Local Running

Cinemark is additionally supporting the New Years Double event by offering its Cinemark Allen 16 theater as the location for packet pickup Thursday, December 29th, and Friday, December 30th. All 2,000 New Years Double entrants will also have a voucher for a free Vitamin Water Zero in their race packet to use at a future screening at a Cinemark theater to help keep them hydrated for the miles ahead!
