Fenland Running Club member John Shaw competed in the Race to the Stones Ultra Marathon on Sunday.

The 100km route started in the Chilterns in Oxfordshire and followed the Ridgeway, one of the oldest paths in Britain, along the Chilterns, through the Thames Valley, up over the Berkshire Downs and finished at the Avebury Stone Circle Rings on the North Wessex Downs.

At 62 miles this is more than two marathons.

On a hot day, in a field of almost 1,000 competitors, John was 116th and completed the hilly off-road course in an amazing 11 hours 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
