Man beats horse

by Suw on June 13, 2004

For 25 years the small town of Llanwrtyd Wells in mid Wales has held the Man versus Horse Marathon. Every year the horse has won. But not this year.
Huw Lobb won the £25,000 prize yesterday, completing the 22-mile course in two hours, five minutes, and 19 seconds. Second was Kay Bee Jay, ridden by Zoe White, in two hours, seven minutes, and 36 seconds. (Via Ben.)
If you're interested, Llanwrtyd Wells also plays host to the World Bog Snorkelling Championships. Next one's coming up in August, on the Bank Holiday weekend. Get yer flippers on…
