This weekend’s Barkley Marathons ended in historic fashion. A half hour before cutoff, John Kelly became the race’s 15th finisher. Thirty minutes later, Gary Robbins ran up to the yellow gate, having accidentally taken a wrong turn and cut short the final miles of the course, and ultimately earning a DNF.
Jamil Coury, 32, of Arizona, who timed out in loop three, filmed the emotional scene at the finish.
