Hell on the Humber Halloween Madness
WARRINGTON endurance king Brian New finished second in the ‘Hell on the Humber Halloween Madness’ event on Saturday.
He ran the second furthest distance of 75 competitors over the six-hour alotted time period, running four-mile loops over the Humber Bridge in Hull in temperatures reaching freezing point by the time of the midnight finish.
New said: “There is quite a hill that crunches your legs both ways and over the course of nine laps there's a fair bit of climbing, with half of it into the wind.
“I was really pleased with the result because there were some national level runners taking part but they went off a bit fast. In a race like this consistent pace is the key.”
New's next challenge is organising an 11 hour 11 minutes charity bike ride at David Lloyd in Warrington on November 11.
The ride, which will take place in the lounge from 7.30am to 6.41pm, is to raise funds for the military patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and St Josephs Family Centre in Warrington.
Anybody can donate a minimum of £10 to ride for an hour. Anyone interested should call Brian on 07728 821236.
