Trionium Leith Hill Half-Marathon

John Lovenberry, I'm awarding you a special prize for the Best Video Ever Made of the Leith Hill Half Marathon. It's spine tinglingly-excellent! Terrific music too. It's going in pride of place on the web site. Very nice work John - big pat on the back!

You might also like to try the Midsummer Munro on 14 June - a half marathon with a marathon's worth of effort (3000 feet up, 3000 feet down - and it's in Surrey).

By the way, the guy being carried by Joel Hicks (no wimp himself) was 7'4" (223cm) and 22 stone (140kg). No wonder Joel was nearly dead by the end of the race!

Very interesting calculations - thanks! I'm 65kg myself and carried a 50kg wife and was nearly last, but that doesn't matter - it really is the taking part that counts at this race. 

The world championships in Finland have a slightly lower weight limit - 49kg. I think that it's best we stick at 50kg - so that we are ready to compete on the world stage.

Hey Drizzly, of course women can carry (they have done in the past, carrying men, carrying women), also men carrying men. All possible combinations are welcome!
