Mark Loughran

"My Daddy's Crazy"

Nobody ever said ultra runners were the most sane group of individuals.  But Mark Loughran had a special sparkle in his eyes when he lugged his heavier-than-usual pack across the dam with a time of 10:54:51.  That's over an hour slower than Mark's time last year.  What could explain this sluggish performance?  Well our on-course cameras caught Mark early in the race and can confirm that Jeremy Topp is no longer the youngest Wakely finisher. "The kids a real fighter.." says Mark.  "She actually carried me most of the way."
