 It takes determination and strength to run a marathon race. It is not for the weak; a teen with autism proved anything is possible when you don’t let anything hold you back.

Don’t miss Tyson’s Run, in theaters March 11, 2022, a feel-good story of faith, courage, grit, and unlikely alliances for a teen on the autism spectrum.


When fifteen-year-old Tyson attends public school for the first time, his life is changed forever. While helping his father clean up after the football team, Tyson befriends champion marathon runner Aklilu. Never letting his autism hold him back, Tyson becomes determined to run his first marathon in hopes of winning his father’s approval. 

With the help of an unlikely friend and his parents, Tyson learns that anything is possible with faith in yourself and the courage to take the first step.

The dynamic cast includes Major Dodson (“The Walking Dead,” LEFT BEHIND), Rory Cochrane (ARGO, “CSI: Miami”), Amy Smart (THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT, JUST FRIENDS), Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, BLADE RUNNER 2049) and Reno Wilson (“Mike and Molly,” “The Cosby Show”)
