The event is staged over 24hrs and involves running as many laps of the 10k trail course as possible.
Vici took part with a friend as a team of two and together they endured the blazing heat in the afternoon followed by relentless torrential rain throughout the night,
which made running in the dark all the more challenging.
By the end of the race at midday on Sunday they’d managed a staggering 9 laps each totalling 180k (111.8 miles!).

If you want to take part next year (but you have been warned), the website can be found here.

Well done Vici.
