Students keep runners on the road at one of 'UK's toughest running events'

For the 16 runners taking part, completing ten marathons in ten days is a gruelling challenge but one that’s made slightly easier thanks to the work of 20 students from the University of Cumbria. A team of second year sport rehabilitation students are helping competitors cope with the rigours of the Brathay 10 in 10 offering them ideal hands on experience while providing welcome support for the athletes who’ll clock up 14,000 feet of ascent in ten days.
