This run was part of the Two Moors Ultra, which consists of the 100-miler, 50-miler, and 35-miler.

David and Jim tackled the 35-miler. Due to this event being a self navigating ultra, it turned into a 38.2-miler and, just as impressively, it was 4,888ft of elevation.

Aside from the stunning scenery, the guys were accompanied for almost the entire run by British legendary fell runner Nicky Spinks, who was recovering from her UTMR attempt a few weeks ago by running the 38 miles through Dartmoor.

Nicky proved to be a fantastic running partner, providing tips, tricks and some added motivation throughout the race. Els, Charlotte and accompanying children provided support and encouragement midway through the race and on the finish line

The pair finished in just over seven hours and 28 minutes with only minor injuries!
