Man beats horse

TimeDate
Runner Huw Lobb, 27, has made history after he became the first man to win Britain's annual man v horse marathon. The previous 24 runnings around the 35-km course raced over countryside and moorland round the small mid-Wales town of Llanwrtyd Wells had all been won by a horse. But South Londoner Lobb, a regular marathon runner, broke through to triumph in two hours five minutes 19 seconds and pick up the 25,000-pounds winner's cheque on Saturday. The first horse home in 2:07:36 was Kay Bee Jay, ridden by Zoe White. Two years ago a runner came within a few seconds of victory but bookmakers William Hill still offered 16-1 against a man winning Saturday's race.
