Marcus Escott completes his first 120km mountain ultra

Some of you may already know about the recent achievements of Marcus Escott, but in case you haven’t, here are a few words and a picture below to summarise his incredible endeavours:
“Extremely happy to have finished my first proper Mountain Ultra, the 120km Lavaredo Ultra Trail with 5800m climbing through the stunning Dolomites in 26hrs40mins. Quite an experience starting in Cortina at 11pm Friday night with 1800 fellow runners wearing head torches heading out into the mountains. Hard to sum up 26hrs+ in a few words so here’s a few photos and course profile but one of the high points was running the loop around the Tre Cime Di Lavaredo at 2500m after working so hard to get up there, and the lowest point was throwing up in the heat after 15hrs or so thinking I might have to pull out as I couldn’t keep anything down. Jen was awesome supporting me throughout and met me as I finished at 2:40am Sunday with celebratory Beer & Pizza!”
