Brave Fenland Running Club member Ryan Jones joined over 7,000 other runners to take on 200 obstacles and 20 miles of terrain at the Rat Race Dirty Weekend event.
Billed as ‘the world’s toughest assault course,’ the Stamford race attracted runners from across the country, including Jones who was one of just 75 who took on the course twice – known as the Dirt Double Ultra.
Ryan produced one of the performances of the weekend, crossing the line in fourth with a time of eight hours and 15 minutes.
Other FRC members were also in action – albeit more conventially – at the Eye 10k.
Richard Hammond crossed the line first for the Wisbech-based club and 25th overall in a time of 40 minutes and nine seconds.
