Photo of the Week: Barkley Marathons

Did you know that East Tennessee is home to the most difficult footrace ever created? It’s called the Barkley Marathons, and since it began in 1986 there have only been 15 finishers.

There’s a wonderful documentary called The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young available right now on Netflix.

Here’s the trailer to the film.

And here are a few photos I took at a recent running of the Barkley Marathons. You won’t understand the photos unless you watch the film. Definitely check it out.
