Hey there! I am writing from Brazil to tell you i am quite impressed about the history of the Barkley’s marathons. I didn’t know anything about this marathon before yesterday, but since I watched the movie, last night, I couldn’t stop researching about the race and the finisher’s lives. So, i have found your blog and red most of the posts. Well, whatch made me write to you is that i have a friend, he has done a lot of mountain ultra marathon recently, and he has finished all of then very well. He is very focused and i bet he will train and can finish the barkley marathon next year. Well, the point is… How to apply for that???? You may receive a lot of questions like that, some of them with a better English than mine…. I didn’t find any new about any Brazilian who have already participate of Barkley Marathon, i hope my friend can do. Oh, yes, his name is Rafael da Cunha and he lives in Sao Paulo. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Looking to be the sacrificial lamb at Barkley. I know it has just finished this years but the last couple of years I have failed at when to apply. From what I have seen it looks to be around the last Friday in December in years past. Any help or hints would be great. Thank you and good luck in all your upcoming endeavors.
Do you have any information on how to apply to get into the Barkley’s Marathons? I’ve been looking up the website and basically its saying to get a hold of someone that has already competed in it for information on getting an application. I would love your help:)

I am a reunion island guy, also found of trail and ultra trail races. I saw your performance (amazing) on the barkley’s this year, and the idea came about to talk to you about a really nice trail to do on my island: “Le grand Raid”. It’s a 100 mile run, with beautiful landscapes and nice people! I would be honored to see you one day, running that race which means a lot to me! Hoping you will be planning to do it in the future, please let me know if you do it.
Enjoy and take care

Hi Jared, this is Elinor Fish, managing editor at Trail Runner magazine. I am wondering if you are going to be in Salt Lake during the Outdoor Retailer Tradeshow (Sat. August 9). I am organizing an event for trail/ultrarunners and want to invite you!
Please contact me and I can fill you in on the details.
