After a wildly successful North American film tour, Where Dreams Go To Die has a release date.

Ethan Newberry, the director of the Barkley Marathons film focusing on Canadian ultrarunner Gary Robbins, announced on Thursday that WDGTD “will be released for advanced download (just through March).” The trail running film chronicles Robbins and his 2016 and 2017 attempts at finishing the Barkley Marathons, a near-impossible 100-mile backcountry race in Tennessee, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at his training in North Vancouver, B.C.

The date of release to download the film is March 5. (DOWNLOAD LINK.)

“You have all been incredibly patient,” Newberry, also known as the man behind The Ginger Runner on YouTube, wrote on Twitter. “The time has come. In five days – Monday, March 5 – my documentary, Where Dreams Go To Die, following @garyrobbins the last two years at The Barkley Marathons, will be released for advanced download (just through March). Mark your calendars, set those alarms, and get ready to find out where dreams go to die. #WDGTD #NoBugles2018″

Where Dreams Go To Die is not the only film focused on the Barkley Marathons. The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young, released in 2014, is available to watch on Netflix in Canada.

Robbins is expected to return for a third attempt (his DNF in 2017 was a story for the ages) at finishing the race – only 15 people have ever finished the gruelling ultramarathon – on the weekend of April Fools.
