With his long summer of travel and running finally winding down, we caught up with Tommy “Back-half” Barlow to get all the details. He became the 282nd person to officially complete the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning and the 18th person from Utah to do it.
It got off to a rocky start with a injury that needed some last minute TLC before the long drive to Western but Tommy not only got his finish but he did it under 24 hours. He then followed that up with a couple sub 24’s at Vermont and Leadville before tackling his home course in the Wasatch mountains.
Thanks to Tommy “Back-half” Barlow for hanging out with the TrailManners crew.
