ATHLETICS: Now that's what I call endurance
BRITISH ULTRA FEST
SOME of the world’s most fanatical endurance runners take their first strides in a six-day race at Radley College.
The event forms the centrepiece of the British Ultra Fest, which the school is hosting this week.
If they last the course, these athletes will finally finish their endeavours at 12noon on Saturday.
By that time, they will have completed thousands of laps of the 400m track.
The British Ultra Fest combines six-day, 48-hour and 24-hour races for the first time in the UK.
James Zarei, from Banbury, who broke the 1,000km barrier at Gateshead in the last six-day race held on British soil, started procedings.

The 48-hour race starts today, followed by the 24-hour contest a day later.
