A TREE surgeon from Ringwood faced fog, thunder and a heatwave to complete his fourth ultra-marathon – running 100km in under 11 hours.

Olly Campbell took on the gruelling challenge of the Race to the Stones along the Ridgeway, ending by Avebury Stones in Wiltshire.

As temperatures soared, and fog was replaced by thunder, Olly completed the race non-stop in 10 hours 56 mins.

Olly said: “The Ridgeway is an incredibly beautiful location, and an amazing place to be when pushing your physical capabilities to the max.

“I was absolutely over the moon to complete the race in under 11 hours. Despite the exhaustion, the feeling of crossing the line was worth it .”
