Skid Row Marathon is a feature length documentary that follows Judge Craig Mitchell and his running club as they prepare for a variety of running events including the Accra International Marathon in Ghana, Africa, the LA Marathon and the upcoming Rome Marathon in March 2015.Many of the club members have been living on the streets or in homeless shelters. They've lost everything - their homes, their jobs, their families and relationships. As they run with the Judge, they battle their demons and attempt to regain their self-esteem and self-sufficiency. Not everyone succeeds.This is the story of how one man can make a difference. It's the story of how talented individuals succumb to addiction and wind up homeless and how these same individuals, when given a second chance, find their way back to becoming productive members of society, eager to give back to their communities.
