Intrepid Soham man Jamie takes on Spartan and wins!
TACKLING the notorious Spartan Race helped Soham man James Hall raise more than �800 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The Spartan Race, held at Bassingbourn Barracks, near Cambridge, is no ordinary endurance race and tasks competitors with crawling through ice, under barbed wire, leaping through fire and traipsing through muddy ditches.
Many competitors fail to finish the fiendish course but James completed the three-mile test in style, helping to raise hundreds.
The 30-year-old was inspired to run by his friend and Taekwondo colleague Lynsay Williams, whose dad has the disease.
He said: “I decided to do the race for charity after Lynsay said her dad had been suffering and getting worse with for the past few years. The disease gradually makes the person get worse and worse so they can’t use their own body any more.
“I would like to thank Craig Morgan and Lynsay and Anne Williams who all helped with the fund raising.”
