(USA) RT:91min

Director: Annika Iltis, Timothy Kane (both in attendance)

Every year 40 runners come from around the world to a small town in Tennessee to test their limits at a cult-like, quirky, and virtually impossible trail race. With a secret application process, unknown start time, and a course that changes every year, The Barkley Marathons has only had 10 people finish in 25 years. Inspired by a historic prison escape gone awry, what follows is an oddly inspiring story where pain has value, failure is spectacular, and it only costs $1.60.

Also in Attendance: John Fegyveresi (subject)
