Man, 80, hot for ultra record
BANGED UP: Sutcliffe’s
Broadmoor home AN 80-year-old British grandfather is hoping to beat his own record of being the oldest person ever to finish an ultra-marathon.
Jack Denness, from Rochester, Kent, will take on the 135-mile endurance challenge through California’s Death Valley, where daytime temperatures can hit 51C.
Mr Denness, who was awarded an MBE two years ago for his charity work, has already been inducted into the ultra-marathon’s Hall of Fame after becoming the first 70-year-old and then 75-year-old to finish the race.
