Movie Night: The Barkley Marathons

Join us for the second of our 2019 running movie nights at a private screening of "The Barkley Marathons" on Sunday, June 16th. Afternoon Matinee: our gathering begins at 2:30 pm & the 1-hour 29-minute movie begins at 3 pm. 

We'll have pizza and drinks for all. You must RSVP and be a club member (members can bring a guest). Seating is limited, so please register if you can attend. We'll be showing the movie in the cinema at LUMINA in the Rincon Hill neighborhood of San Francisco (south of Market St., near AT&T Park).

A famous prison escape sparks the idea for a cult-like race that has seen only 10 finishers in its first 25 years.
This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary reveals the sports world’s most guarded secret.


Every year, 40 international runners descend upon a small town in Tennessee to test their mental and physical limits against the Barkley Marathons. Devised as a mockery of James Earl Ray’s historic prison escape gone awry, the race has seen only 10 finishers in its first 25 years. The race’s co-founder Lazarus Lake is as weird, unpredictable, and irresistible a character as the idiosyncratic event he has created. With a secret application process, unknown start time, and treacherous terrain, the Barkley has gained cult-like status with ultra-runners and amateurs alike. This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary invites you to the sports world’s most guarded secret; where pain has value, failure is spectacular, and it only costs $1.60 to enter.  

Our sincere thanks to our Boston Marathon Race Captain and previous Club Ambassador, Alejandra Cadena, for organizing the evening!
