Beaconhills College’s Deputy Head of Beacon Explorers, Tegyn Angel, has just completed one of the world’s most gruelling ultramarathons.

On his annual leave this month, he competed in the Tor Des Geants Mountain Ultramarathon, traversing 338km of mountain passes and ancient villages in Italy’s Aosta Valley. The event involved climbing and descending over 24,000m.

Mr Angel’s time of 106 hours and 47 minutes placed him 52 out of 462 finishers (from a total of 867 starters). It was the top result from Oceania in 2017 and makes him one of the highest placed Australians in the event’s eight-year history. Incredible effort!

P.S. And he just got engaged. Congratulations!
