I agree with the other that one needs to clarify what they mean by "hard".

You can refer to physical exertion, availability of resources, likelihood of injury, or just working through the monotony of the basic fundamentals.

I would have to say a hot dog eating contest. Daily training would be brutal.

True; that and dealing with the wind, rain, snow, sleet, and of course the hills. I went out for cross country one year in high school as I said but I hated it so bad that I never went out for it again.

doing a hard sport for living is one thing, doing a hard sport as a hobby is another.

Either something like a Triatholon because it is THREE endurance sports. One marathon is hard enough but having to cycle and swim on the same day would put me other the edge.

Or and expensive sport like Polo.

Rugby perhaps? You have to have both a high level of cardiovascular fitness as well as strength along with ball skills.

This. It's seems worse to compete in cycling than cross country running.

Kick Boxing (brutal - I don't even call it a sports) and Squash (requires unreal amount of stamina when you play on international level).
