FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Marathon runners in Leiper’s Fork were greeted with an unexpected surprise along their route in Franklin Half Marathon a few weeks ago.

Runners usually expect to see friends and family as they run, but it’s not often that they see a hillbilly band parked along the side of the path to heckle them.

The video titled “A Marathon Runner’s Nightmare! Run…Run” was uploaded a little over a week ago and already has more than 180,000 views. 

Many of the runners reportedly turned in their fastest times during the race.
