Sidmouth Running Club’s Adrian Horne took part in the Hospicecare Wild Tri Extreme on Dartmoor, writes Hamish Spence.

He completed a 32k cycle ride on a route that skirts around the Meldon Reservoir and some steep ascents onto the wild tops of Dartmoor.

After that, he ran a 13k trail onto one of the highest Torrs of Dartmoor, a climb that Adrian completed a fortnight ago doing a marathon.

However, this time it involved crossing boggy terrain, a water course, rocks and more mud. Adrian was back and taking on Yes Torr again, but with a renewed enthusiasm to beat this brute.

Beat it he did, coming in 17th over all, in a good time of four hours and 51 minutes, raising £144 for Hospicecare while he was at it.
