The ‘man’ of the race was Marvin Skagerberg who overcome insurmountable odds to finish the race. He did so outside of the 10 day cut-off, but it didn’t matter. He inspired thousands along the way with his courage, inner-toughness, and never-say-quit attitude. He was guided along the way by his crew of Stu Gleman and was joined for the last few dozen miles by Abi Meadows, and her daughter, who did wonders with Marvin’s gnarly feet. Congrats to Marvin on doing another ‘big thing!’
Congrats to everyone who toed the line at the ferry in Dorena Landing, Missouri. It takes a lot of ‘guts’ to even get on that ferry and toe the line.
An epic race and an epic fraternity everyone enters who reaches ‘The Rock’ in Castle Rock, Georgia atop Sand Mountain, in the middle of a corn field, overlooking Nickajack Lake.
