The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young is a documentary about a grueling marathon event held annually in Tennessee. The event is the brainchild of its creator, Lazarus Lake, and includes a course of over 100 miles of treacherous terrain, only a few dozen participants, and a strict time limit of 60 hours. The film follows several of the participants as they attempt to complete the course, as well as Lake himself and other key figures involved in the event’s organization. The documentary provides an in-depth look into the unique and fascinating world of the Barkley Marathons, exploring the incredible physical and mental strength required to complete the event, as well as the human stories behind those who take part. It is a captivating, inspiring, and occasionally heartbreaking story of determination, perseverance, and the human spirit.
