Robinson tops yet another trail

18 August 2008

Record trail: Will Robinson climbing up to Llandudno Corner in his record-beating run in the Men's Health Hout Bay Trail Challenge.

Ever-hardy UCT runner and cyclist Will Robinson has chalked up yet another endurance-event triumph, winning the Men's Health Hout Bay Trail Challenge 2008 on 26 July - his first time at the event - in a record time of 04:21:58. That's a full two minutes and 33 seconds faster than the previous best time.

Robinson, leading right from the starter's gun, also broke the record for the first leg of the 35km off-road challenge, said to be one of the toughest trail challenges around. Almost everything went according to plan, said Robinson afterwards, even though the third and final leg was something of a battle. "I'm really pleased with my run."
