Known as the world’s toughest trail race, the Barkley Marathons will be at Frozen Head State Park this weekend. Only 15 people have successfully completed the 100-mile race since its inception.
Barkley Marathons set for this weekend

The weekend of March 24 will be a busy one for Frozen Head State Park as it will once again host the Barkley Marathons.
The Barkley Marathons is an ultra marathon trail race consisting of a three-lap, 60-mile “fun run” of a full course of five laps and approximately 100 miles.

Gary “Lazarus” Cantrell is the race founder and he first came up with the idea for the race following James Earl Ray’s escape from Brushy Mountain State Prison in 1977.
