17 May Ultra Impressive Torbay Tri Club Members
Another busy weekend for Torbay Tri Club members started early on Saturday 15th May. Kevin Lofts took on the Devon Coast to Coast Ultra marathon which started on the beach in Wembury, South Devon and took the athletes over an incredible 117 miles before finishing in Lynmouth in North Devon. The run had all the variety Devon has to offer with the route meandering north through towns and villages as well as crossing the naturally beautiful Dartmoor and Exmoor. If the distance, elevation and terrain wasn’t enough, the weather decided to add the final challenge to the weekend with regular heavy downpours testing the athletes and making the endeavour to the finish even more impressive. Kevin completed the ultra in a superb 8th place in a time of 29 hours 11 minutes.
