Paul Nicholls was again pushing himself to the limit in the Rosemoor Topping Trail Marathon. The run, which is actually 31 miles, climbs to the highest part of the North York Moors and stays at this height for several miles, meaning that you are at full exposure to the elements. Paul completed the run (in his shorts!) in a little over 7 hours.
