The tunnel of pain at Combe Down, Bath

ULTRA distance running is a unique section of our sport and one has grown hugely in recent years as people look at different ways to challenge themselves beyond the conventional marathon.

But here is an event on our doorstep that I was unaware of which definitely falls into the category of mind-blowing difficulty, both physically and mentally.

The venue is Combe Down Tunnel, Bath and this intriguing article was recently posted on the BBC Sport website and I make no apologies for providing the link below. It is a long read that befits the subject matter and even if you only have time for a quick scan you’ll never fear tackling a marathon again!
