Speaking at the launch, Stevey said: “This is going to be an incredible event and I am calling out to all runners in the surrounding areas to come along and join in for a once in a lifetime opportunity to test your metal against a horse.

“If you are not into the running, no worries just come along and enjoy the entertainment – it will be Epic.”
