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!

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.
