SKID ROW MARATHON follows four runners as they rise from the mean streets of LA to run marathons around the world, fighting the pull of homelessness and addiction at every turn. Their story is one of hope, friendship and dignity. 

Los Angeles District Court Judge Craig Mitchell sees people at some of the worst stages of their lives in his courtroom. One of the men he sentenced to prison approached him after his release and asked the Judge to visit him at the Midnight Mission homeless shelter where he was living. The Judge agreed and after the visit decided to start a running club. The club gives him a chance to change the world in a way that he can’t in his own courtroom. He also comes to realize that he needs the club too and the balance it provides in his own life.  ( Documentary Feature by Mark and Gabriele Hayes, 2017, USA, 85 minutes)
