Ibiza Marathon, XTerra Taïwan, Mountain Film : Monkey See Monkey Do and a new Episode of Walks around Britain on HorizonSports this week.
Ibiza Marathon 2019
Ibiza Marathon really makes a difference among the outstanding European marathons. It is held in the evening so that runners can enjoy the spectacular views of the most international island in Spain. The Ibiza 21K + 21K Relay is a new race that complements the Ibiza Marathon and has been designed so that two participants share the experience of completing the 42,195m course. A parallel 12 km race completes the proposal of Ibiza Marathon so that all running enthusiasts can experience the island in a different way with a route passing through the most popular spots in the island.
XTERRA Taiwan 2019
Lets fly to Taiwan for what is tagged amongst the toughest triathlon championships in the world. XTERRA Asia Pacific signalled the start of the 2019 Asia Pacific Tour, and some of the best triathletes on the globe gathered in Kenting – an adventure tourism destination in southern Taiwan; which provided an amazing landscape for this off-road race.
Film : Monkey See Monkey Do
This collection of four films features world class climbing from the UK, Canada and Madagascar.
Matt Segal, Hazel Findlay and Johnny Dawes take it in turn to crimp, palm, squirm and wriggle their way up the esoteric route, Gin Palace. But whose technique will prove successful?
Kevin Shields is known as the ‘one handed climber’. Despite being born with most of his left hand missing Kevin has shocked the climbing world with some daring and inspirational ascents.
Little Big-Walling in Madagascar
The West Face of Karimbony in the Tsaranoro Massif is home to one of the world’s hardest big-wall free climbs, “Tough Enough?”. James McHaffie and a team of top UK climbers head to Madagascar to find out if this route is indeed tough enough.
World class climber Sonnie Trotter teams up with world class belayer Cory Richards to take on the Squamish classic, ‘Presto’.

Walks Around Britain – Tresco / Caer Caradoc
The small island of Tresco is one of the Isles of Scilly – and has some fascinating heritage and wonderful Caribbean-like beaches – all you’ll discover on this short walk. The route is a linear walk, and finishes at New Grimsby for the boat back to St Mary’s. Check as you come ashore the return ferry is from New Grimsby – if not, you need to walk back to Carn Near.
The second walk is from the town of Church Stretton to the top of one of the most famous hills in Shropshire – Caer Caradoc. And you can even walk to it straight from the railway station too!
