This race is always a challenge, particularly as it takes place at this time of the year. Last year, it was the Beast from the East. This year it was gale force winds coupled with driving rain. The race itself is enough of a challenge without those extra handicaps. We had two runners take part. John Boothman, the hero of the Spine Race and Lucas Payne, the legend of the Iron Man competitions. John completed the race, although it took him two hours longer than last year and Lucas pulled out. The following is an account from each runner about an extremely tough and challenging day.
