Endless, by Matthew Dorman, a feature producer with TSN, is one of several recent documentaries made about the Barkley, which only 15 people have finished in its 30+ year history. Robbins is not one of them, despite three attempts and countless accolades as both an ultrarunner and race director. Robbins is a compelling character, and his attempts to conquer the Barkley are almost Shakespearean in their drama.

The film airs as a TSN Original.
