Jared Campbell paid his $1.60 and a pack of cigarettes for his third attempt and second finish at the 2014 Barkley Marathons, a niche race in a niche sport. Since the race’s inception in 1986, only fourteen runners out of about 800 have completed the 100 mile race within the official 60 hour cut-off. Jared is one of two racers that have finished the race twice. Jared joins The Nation to discuss one of the most difficult trail races and his view on training.
