Gary Robbins has been one of Canada’s top ultra-marathon distance runners for the past 15 years. He’s attained many podiums, course records, and “fastest known times” over the years, including his still standing course record at the HURT Hawaii 100 miler, where he’s been the course record holder for over a decade, running the two fastest times in the history of the race. He is perhaps best known however for his three non-finishes of the world’s toughest footrace, The Barkley Marathons. A documentary titled “Where Dreams Go To Die” captured his journey and has been viewed online over 2.5 million times.
Gary is speaking at the National Running Show, Jan 21-22 at the NEC in the UK and the Run Show Boston, Feb 4-5, 2023 at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA.
