    The barkley is the perfect competition for competitions sake.

    Its cool, off radar, underground, attracts elites, ridiculous entry requirements, and has smoked some big names
    And so hard half the years no one finishes in time limit.

    What more could a bunch of ultra-runners want?

    Not to mention the ultimate bragging right if you finish. It has definitely eaten some “big” names. good luck to him!

    He was posting videos to Instagram but took them down? Must be a rule or something to not share progress on the socials... three loops done is all I know now, which constitutes a fun run (crazy nutbag!!)

    One of these days I'd love to travel down there to the event. Maybe someone from around here will get in and I can help crew.

    Saw KS is going for the Colorado Trail in August this year! That’s cool too! Gary Robbins is a tough one as well!
