If you’ve ever attempted the Barkley Marathons, we’re guessing you didn’t finish.

Since the grueling race started in 1986, there have only been 14 finishers. That’s slightly less than one finisher every three years.

If you’re still not convinced this is one of the most awful things you can put your body through, then you will be.

The race takes place in the Tennessee mountains, covers 100 miles in distance, involves climbing 66 thousand feet and it has to be completed in 60 hours. Also, it’s likely the only race you’ll ever see that’s started with the lighting of a cigarette.

You’re probably wondering who came up with such a miserable race. His name is Gary “Laz” Cantrell, and surprisingly, he doesn’t want you to fail.
