The Barkley Marathons is an extremely difficult ultra-distance event.
Over 60,000 feet of elevation gain (over 120,000 feet of change), that is equivalent to climbing and descending Mount Everest TWICE from sea level!
Despite thousands of athletes attempting The Barkley Marathons, only 15 individuals have finished the event since its inception in 1986 till 2017.
