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