barkley marathons

A new documentary about the Barkley marathons dropped. This one, at 1:16hrs, follows Canadian Gary Robbins over the course of his attempt to finish the Barkeley in 2016 and 2017, suitably called where dreams come to die. As a reminder, the Barkeley is an annual race held at Frozen Head State Park in Tennessee every April. It is a 5-loop race total 100 miles where runners have to retrieve pages from books that match their bib numbers. In addition to sleep deprivation, extreme exhaustion, weather, altitude changes. It’s one of the most legendary races in the world.

Amazing documentary, well worth sitting down and watching.
