If you’ve ever considered running the “the world’s toughest footrace”—or if you just need some running inspiration—check out AT&T U-verse Sport’s new three-episode series about the 2013 Badwater 135 Ultramarathon.

“It’s extremely well done and we are very pleased,” Badwater said on its Facebook page.

The documentary explores the history of the race and follows six runners as they attempt to run 135 miles from Death Valley to Mount Whitney—in July. “Marathon Man” Dean Karnazes is featured; others include Shannon Farar-Griefer, Karsten Solheim, Oswaldo Lopez, Oz Pearlman, and Parvaneh Moayedi.

Episodes are available online for free, and are approximately 30 minutes each.
