The Barkley is an endurance race run every year in Tennessee. It is considered by most the toughest race there is. I first heard of the Barkley several years ago when I was following ultra-runner Charlie Engle after hearing him speak at the Admiral Theater in West Seattle. He was there presenting his “Running the Sahara” video – a grueling test of mental stamina as well. Today I saw that The Atlantic had posted a twenty-minute video about the Barkley. I found it worth watching.
