Three Finishers at Barkley Marathons – First time ever

Three Finishers at Barkley Marathons – First time ever

Barkley Marathons, the toughest race you have never heard of had three finishers for the first time EVER. Until last year there were only 10 finishers in the 25 years of the race history. This year, the course record was shattered by Brett Maune who was the sole finisher at Barkley Marathons last year.
