Olympian Kelly Sotherton races a horse (Murphy ridden by Hannah Brendon of Hyde Park Stables) in Rotten Row, Hyde Park to launch 2015’s Whole Earth Man V Horse marathon, taking place in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales on the 13th June. The Man v Horse Marathon began in June 1980 following a friendly dispute in a Welsh bar. The Landlord overheard the two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain and who was more suited to it. To settle the argument the then landlord, Gordon Green, created the now long standing and international event, Man versus Horse Marathon.
