Promising plenty of hills, mud and cattle grids to navigate, the Downland Devil would be the perfect challenge for Ian Dyer who travelled to Lancing West Sussex to take on the tough multi terrain route. Organised by Worthings RunAcademy Ian joined the other 350 runners taking full advantage.
And as promised the route proved tough . Right from the start the course proved challenging. ‘The race was hilly from the off, it too me a couple of miles to get into it’, but Ian persisted and took on every obstacle before getting to the final mile. ‘The hardest hill came at the last part’. What goes up must go down though and Ian finished strongly on the descent to the end. He managed to finish in 1.23.26 taking 130th.
Brilliant running Ian!
