Dominic's story: New Dad Dominic chose the longest race on offer to see if he has 'got what it takes' to complete two ultras back-to-back. Running is part of Dominic's family history, although tragically his Grandfather, who was a serious runner, died aged just 30 after an accident while running. As a result, Dominic is determined to see what he is capable of achieving if he really pushes himself in his training. To balance his busy worklife as a primary school teacher and his new commitment as a dad, Dominic plans to run to and from work to make the most of his time.
