This year, our fabulous competition winners are tackling one of the nuttiest endurance races known to man (and beast)…the legendary Whole Earth Man vs Horse Marathon, fuelled by the pure positive energy of our peanut butters.
The race takes place every year in the Welsh village of Llanwrtyd Wells, and as the name suggests, pits athletes against horses. Our individual runners will be taking in just about every terrain and gradient over 22 miles, while our relay runners will run 3 roughly equal legs.
We believe that when you put the best in, you get the best out…which is why we’re so excited about the professionals supporting our Whole Earth team this year.

Susie Chan is an endurance runner, who enjoys running races from 1 mile to over 100 miles. She’s completed the World Marathon Majors and the Marathon des Sables 3 times, and run Man V Horse as a relay and solo runner twice, it’s quite possibly her favourite race in the UK!
