Exmoor 3030 Race
02 Nov 2016
William White (B14), Tobin Rusby (R14), Felix Rusby (R16), Tom Badger and Oscar Baker recently won the Exmoor 3030 Endurance Race. Not only did they win but they broke the course record and beat eight Parachute Regiment Teams, raising money for the Royal British Legion! Well done boys!
William writes “After 7 hours and 16 minutes of gruelling running, terrain and weather the Bristol Babes smashed the record to win the event by beating the best of 8 Para teams by 3 minutes. The story is one of determination and team work. All members of the team gave it their all and pushed each other to the end. Mentions must go to Tobin Rusby for his superb map reading skills, Tom Badger for the morale, Felix Rusby for pushing the pace in a true runners style and Oscar Baker for coming into a team and proving he could match the best of us. Credit must also go to the 2nd battalion the Parachute Regiment who really pushed us, all the while doing it in combat trousers, boots and army bergens. They once again proved why they are so respected”
The Exmoor 3030 is an endurance race which involves teams running, walking, crawling, dragging each other across Exmoor whilst carrying 30 pounds on their backs. The event is charity focused with all proceeds going to Royal British Legion.
