G.U.T.S. Presents - The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young
A tiny town in Tennessee is the most unlikely of places you would expect to find the hardest trail race in the world. Every year an international group of runners come to test their limits at this cult-like, quirky, and virtually impossible event. Created as a mockery of a historic prison escape, in 25 years, only 10 people have finished The Barkley Marathons. Through the competitors spectacular failures, and unprecedented successes, this documentary film contemplates the value of pain in a society that favors comfort.
Join us after the screening for a Q&A with race co-founder, Lazarus Lake.
