In the fringe world of ultra endurance sports, there is an outlier: The Barkley.

The Barkley is the world’s toughest race you’ve never heard of. With 59,100 feet of climb and decent over 100 miles, it’s considered the most difficult endurance event on the planet. Since its start in 1986, only thirteen men have actually been able to finish the race. No woman has successfully completed more than sixty miles on the course.

Portraits of the athletes were taken the day before the start, and immediately upon quitting, being tapped out, or in a rare case, finishing.
