This April, why not do something a little extreme? You can give distance running a try. You may want to scoff at that, as running has never been considered an extreme sport. However, we’re not talking about any kind of distance running. We’re talking about the Tortola Torture.

On 20 April, runners will embark on a course aptly titled the Tortola Torture. Termed an ultramarathon, the gruelling race takes the competitors on a rigorous path around the island. The course begins on the flat and climbs to an elevation of 6,586 feet, stretched across 12.8 miles. It then descends over 13.1 miles. So, if you’re looking for an activity to test your physical and mental endurance, this is it!

Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone, as participants may register individually or as two-person and three-person relay teams. Of course, to the victor go the spoils. In this case, the spoils are awarded to those topping the man, woman, two-person, and three-person categories.

Registration is currently open, so you can join the torture! Visit the official website or Tortola Torture on Facebook to sign up or for more information on the race.
