VIDEO: Gary Robbins finishes third loop of the 2018 Barkley Marathons, misses cut-off

The Canadian ultra-endurance athlete was back at the enigmatic race for the third straight year, but was unable to finish after facing some of the worst weather in the race's history during his second loop. No one finished this year's event.

This year, Robbins was done in by some of the worst weather ever at the event on the first night. Though he completed what is known as a ‘fun run’ (three 20-mile loops in less than 40 hours), Robbins was tapped out as he missed the 36-hour cut-off to be eligible to continue onto the fourth (of five) loops of the 2018 Barkley Marathons.
