Half an hour is of course nothing compared to the 57 hours 53 minutes and 20 seconds Jared Campbell spent on The Barkley Marathons track in the Frozen Head State Park in Tennessee this past weekend. I followed the race on Twitter #BM100 and the last two loops out of five he was the only runner left. He became the second runner after Brett Maune, to have completed the race twice – a great achievement deserving big congratulations. In total there have been only 15 finishes since the 1980’s within the time limit 60 hours in this amazingly hard 100 mile (161 km) race.
