The Warm-Up

Doc­u­men­tary on Gary Rob­bins’ Barkley Marathons saga sells out across Canada

Canadian Running - - FEATURES -

Cana­di­ans who de­layed in buy­ing tick­ets for the Where Dreams Go To Die tour are out of luck. That is, if they wanted to see the film in a Cana­dian cinema in Oc­to­ber. All five Cana­dian film tour stops – North Van­cou­ver, Ed­mon­ton, Cal­gary, Ot­tawa and Toronto – all sold out in just four days. That’s more than 2,200 tick­ets.

Where Dreams Go To Die is a film chron­i­cling Rob­bins and his two un­suc­cess­ful at­tempts at fin­ish­ing the Barkley Marathons, a more-than 160k ul­tra­ma­rathon in the thick woods of Ten­nessee’s Frozen Head State Park. Ethan New­berry, also known as Gin­ger Run­ner on so­cial me­dia, cre­ated the film us­ing footage from both the 2016 and 2017 Barkley Marathons as well as footage from Rob­bins’ train­ing. Cana­dian Run­ning will be sure to report where the film finds its home on­line when it is an­nounced.
