Watch This Barkley Marathons Doc, and Thank Your Lucky Stars You Aren’t Competing

Dubbed “the race that eats its young,” the world-famously grueling event is hosted by eccentrically cheerful sadist Gary Cantrell, aka Lazarus Lake. Covering 100 miles of frigid Tennessee mountain country, the race is part trail run, part scavenger hunt, part extreme test of mental and physical fortitude. Racers navigate via map and compass, complete five 20+ mile loops, and collect book pages along the way to prove they are on course. Gear Junkie
