How far would you make it in the Barkley 100?


No Comments

The Barkley 100, or “The Race That Eats Its Young”, is a brutal 100 mile race. There are no trails, you are only given a map and a compass. It’s not a race against the other competitors or against time – It’s a race made to see how far you can push yourself. As of today only 15 runners have ever finished.

Following is an excerpt from Wikipedia about how the idea for the race came to fruition:
“The Barkley course was designed by Gary “Lazarus Lake” Cantrell. His idea for the race was inspired upon hearing about the 1977 escape of James Earl Ray, the assassin of Martin Luther King, Jr, from nearby Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary. Ray covered only 8 miles (13 km) after running 55 hours in the woods. Cantrell said to himself, “I could do at least 100 miles”, mocking Ray’s low mileage. Thus, the Barkley Marathons was born.”

What it Takes to Run the Gnarliest Race in the World


No Comments

A few days ago we featured a video of Ryan Sandes running through the mountains of South Africa. Todays’ video is all about him and his inspirational journey to the 2017 Western States 100, or as some like to call it, “The Gnarliest Race in the World”.
It might be incredibly tough but there’s one other race that might deserve the title of the worlds gnarliest race just as much. Stay tuned this week to find out which one!

“Every morning the gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion – or it’ll be killed. Every morning the lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle – or it’ll starve. Are you the lion or the gazelle?”
