The Barkley Marathons is legendary. Each year, 40 runners pay the $1.80 entry fee and make their way through the thick brush and woods of Tennessee’s Frozen Head State Park. Since the event began in 1986, only 15 people have actually finished The Barkley Marathons.

No Canadian has ever finished the race. 

In 2017, Gary Robbins, of North Vancouver, B.C., got just about as close as you can get.
