"Smokies or Bust!" is a venture grant documentary co-directed and edited by Ethan Ley'13 and Beloit College Cross-Country coach David Eckburg that traces the journey of alumnus Eric Koenig'11 and David Eckburg on their quest to run 200 miles over the span of seven days along one of the most famous trails in the United States; The Appalachian Trail. Beginning at the southern terminus of Springer Mountain, GA, watch as the runners walk, run, hike, stumble, swear, sweat, sing, and eat their way as far north on the AT as possible, all while bringing crew-members Ethan Ley'13 and Matthew McKay'13 in tow.
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
