A duo from Sleaford Town Runners travelled to Carlisle to attempt to conquer the Rat Race’s The Wall ultra-marathon.

The gruelling test of stamina took Sarah Whatton and Shaun Louth along Hadrian’s Wall from Carlisle Castle to the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, over mixed terrain both on- and off-road.

The target is for the 69 miles to be completed in under 24 hours, with Sarah and Shaun both finishing in 22hr 12min.
