Wife carrying race

In a bizarre race in the UK, competitors must tackle a 380-metre course, jump haystacks, climb steep slopes and dodge water pistols – all whilst carrying their wives on their backs!

This year’s winners were Richard Blake-Smith and his partner Anna. Richard and Anna trained for the race at an athletics track near their home.

Despite the name, couples do not need to be married to compete.

Richard and Anna will now compete at the World Championships in July in Finland.
