The race today which is arguably the toughest endurance event that exists did see a finisher– the 15th in its entire history. John Kelly finished in 59:30 despite having fallen asleep within the last hour and a half before the 1:42 p.m. cutoff. It was the biting cold weather that woke him up. He does not know how long he was asleep for.
Kelly finished in tears, looking like a broken man and wearing a plastic bag found on the course to help keep warm.
