“As is tradition, Laz lights a cigarette to kick things off – an unorthodox start for an unorthodox race. When the embers glow, participants have just 60 hours to complete five rounds of the same unmarked 20 mile (give-or-take) loop: twice clockwise, twice counterclockwise, with the leading runner dictating the final loop direction – if any make it that far.” The Barkley Marathons: the hellish 100-mile race with 15 finishers in 36 years. There’s a great documentary on this crazy race.
