Spirit of the Marathon

When I was dossing about on the internet today (high pressure job) I stumbled across a movie website, promoting The Spirit of the Marathon (http://www.marathonmovie.com/) Has anyone heard anything about it?

Here's a bit about the film: Spirit of the Marathon is the first ever non-fiction feature film to capture the drama and essence of the famed 26.2 mile running event. The movie brings together a diverse cast of amateur athletes and marathon luminaries. As six unique stories unfold, each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the Chicago Marathon. More than a sports movie, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph; a spectacle that will be embraced by runners and non-runners alike. Filmed on four continents and in five countries, the film stars legends such as Dick Beardsley, Paula Radcliffe, Bill Rodgers, Toshihiko Seko and Grete Waitz.

It was released in the US last week. Can't find any UK screenings so far.
