Runners face tough endurance test

The 'dunking time' section of the Total Warrior 10 Mile Challenge

Competitors have jumped through flames and battled with other obstacles in a 10 mile endurance test.

The Total Warrior 10 Mile Challenge included features such as the Human BBQ and Peaks of Pain creating a massive test of strength, stamina, agility and mental determination.

The event at Shap Abbey in Cumbria called on those taking part to overcome rugged terrain, five river crossings and up to 25 specially designed obstacles.

Organisers said that 10 kilometre runs and marathons are great, but adding 8ft walls, swamps, tunnels and fire creates a greater personal test.
