Tales From Out There is the story of the Barkley Marathons, arguably the world's toughest long-distance trail foot-race. In this book, the 24-year history of this event is covered in detail, with all known runners and their results listed. Numerous photographs, charts, and maps are included. The runners have had some interesting experiences out there during the Barkley races. Some of those experiences have been humorous, some dramatic and harrowing. Many physical and psychological obstacles have been incorporated into the design of the event to test the limits of human endurance. The result is that most runners fail to finish the race. The stories in this book describe the epic struggles of the Barkley contestants, including some of the world's best endurance runners, against this extreme challenge. Tales From Out There will captivate the reader with true stories of both heartbreaking failures and awe-inspiring victories.

About the Author

Frozen Ed Furtaw has been running marathons or longer races since 1978, and has completed over 100 ultramarathon races. He was one of the most successful competitors in the early years of the Barkley Marathons. This earned him the nickname Frozen Ed, after the Frozen Head Mountain area in Tennessee where the Barkley Marathons are held. Now a retired engineer living in southwestern Colorado, Frozen Ed continues to pursue the seemingly impossible goal of finishing the Barkley Marathons.
