Newlyweds from Cumbria run 300km ultra-race for their honeymoon

Newlyweds from Cumbria chose an unusual way to spend their honeymoon this week. Rather than head off for a relaxing holiday in the sun, Krystal Garnett and Richard Moreland instead took on the mammoth challenge of an ultra-running race across the north of England. Starting on the west coast of Cumbria early last Saturday morning, Krystal and Richard joined 180 other competitors in the SILVA Northern Traverse, covering 300km, which included 6,500m of ascent. On the move through the day and night with very little sleep, the happy couple reached the finish line on the east coast of Yorkshire after 84 hours and 21 minutes on the trail.
