He was the first person to reach ‘The Rock’ atop Sand Mountain by hours.

Greg’s time is the third fastest in the race’s history and just 8 minutes behind DeWayne Satterfield’s time of 3 days 17 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds, set in 2009, that was the untouchable course record for years before Georgia native Joe Fejes toppled it last year in 3 days 8 hours 10 minutes and 16 seconds.
