Marathon man

23 Jul

A granddad from Kent shows the young uns how to be a true Bring it on Brit by being the oldest person to complete the Death Valley ultra-marathon in California. Dubbed the hottest race in the world, the runners face 135 miles across the desert with temperatures reaching 55C. But that didn’t put Jack Denness off. Rather than sitting at home in his slippers, 75 year old Jack finished the race in 59 hours and 13 minutes. Not only that, but it’s the 12th time he has completed the race.

If that isn’t true Bring it on Brit spirit, we don’t know what is!
