JASMIN PARIS 1st Woman to Ever Finish Barkley Marathons

JASMIN PARIS BECOMES THE FIRST WOMAN TO EVER FINISH THE BARKLEY MARATHONS in 59:58:21….by just 99 seconds before the 60 hour cutoff. HISTORY MADE!!

She is the first woman in the race’s 40 year old history to complete all 5 loops for 100 miles in under 60 hours.

Lazarus Lake, race creator, famously said over and over that no woman could ever finish the course. Of course he hoped it would happen and has a way of motivating people.
