Barkley Marathons start this weekend
Quote | Reply
Not technically triathlon, but endurance sports-related - the Barkley Marathons kicks off this weekend.

Will we see a 16th finisher? Who knows! Follow on twitter via #BM100.

If you aren't familiar - watch this and be amazed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDZdsqbcGTU

John Kelly announced today that he's running it. Not a shock but given his move to the UK this might be his last shot for a few years

If Laz lets Courtney Dauwalter in, she could be the first female finisher [maybe not on her first attempt, but who knows?]

After her performance at Big's Backyard Ultra, I think Laz kinda has a crush on her; and rightly so

He even painted the gate a new color

Gonna have to read his latest blog post sometime this weekend. Stoked to see he's going for completing it a second time. Are there any other runners that have completed it more than twice? I know many have attempted it multiple times, but unsure how many have completed it, and then gone back to do it again.

Brett Maune has finished it twice. Jared Campbell has finished it three times. So if 18 total finishes they have five. Amazing.

It was photoshop'ed. Live video on IRun4Ultra's twitter feed is showing that it is the classic yellow we all know and love

I only watched about 5 seconds of that video before I had to look away... Did I see a hairy man in drag with a Hitler mustache?

I follow him on strava, he took all the CRs on the course's segments, made it a winter project of his. If anyone can repeat, I think he could.

According to Keith Dunn’s twitter he was the first runner up Rat Jaw, and the first runner to complete the first loop. The cutoff for completing the first loop is in about 2:15 and so far 17!people (out of the 40 that started) have completed the first loop. The most recent one has decided to drop out after only doing one loop.

As near as I can tell, he is killing it.

Twitter is the only way I have found to follow Barkley.



Edit: Well, he posted on twitter 11 minutes ago that he dropped out.......

John Kelly @RndmForestRunnr

"Thank you so much for the #BM100 support. Long story short: I quit. I was good on time, felt strong, conditions were (relatively) good. But I know what 5 loops takes, & realized I don't have that motivation anymore. And I was no longer having fun. Sorry for any disappointment"

I can't pick your lottery numbers with any kind of accuracy. BUT, I can predict this: You will win the lottery exactly the same number of times you finish the Barkley Marathons.

Do scratch-offs count?

Also, I did win a small Pick-6 many years ago
