2018 Barkley Race Footage

I’ve put together some on-course footage, pictures, and commentary from my time crewing and acting as a random course checkpoint at the 2018 Barkley Marathons. The video and audio quality is pretty horrible, but this is what I got so it’s this or nothing. And maybe grainy, noisy footage is appropriate for “on-course” Barkley coverage.

    The footage isn’t too bad except I had couldn’t hear much of the last few minutes. Good view from the Fire Tower. The terrain looks quite desolate. And cold! Well done to all the runners. Such a tough course. Do you think you will ever try it again??

      Thanks, and yes the terrain really blends together, without many long-range views or landmarks that can serve as references – one of the reasons navigation is difficult. As for me going back out there, who knows.

    Loved the footage and commentary. Thank you so much for posting, and not discarding. This is priceless.
