Albon all set to endure for R14m
British endurance athlete Jonathan Albon could be $1m (about R14m) richer by Sunday – all he has to do is win a 24-hour race, cover at least 160km and conquer dozens of obstacles.
The 29-year-old has a shot at the huge cash bonus after winning the Spartan World Championship in the US and the Spartan Trifecta World Championship in Greece. That leaves the Spartan Ultra World Championship in Iceland.
“The most challenging thing is the headlamp – it gives you a headache,” he said. “Although that could be easily cured by winning the bonus.”
