Albon wins Survival of the Fittest event at Battersea Power Station

Tuesday, November 19 2013 by SNTV
  • Intro:

    A look at the 2013 Survival of the Fittest event, which took place near London's iconic Battersea Power Station on Saturday.

    Script:

    The Battersea Power Station is an iconic building for many reasons. The building - a decommissioned coal-fired power station - acquired iconic status after it was used on the cover of progressive rock band Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals.

    But on Saturday, for the third and final time, the Survival of the Fittest endurance race was held at the venue.

    This year's race took place on a ten-kilometre course that included 20 obstacle sections, ranging from giant hay bales and piles of tyres to monkey bars and mud pits.

    Almost 15,000 people took part in all - both individually and in teams - with groups of 350 runners starting at 15 minute intervals.

    Jon Albon led the way and crossed the finishing line in 33 minutes and 40 seconds, which was more than half an hour faster than the race average.

    But with the site due for re-development in the coming months, this is expected to be the last time the London stage of the Survival of the Fittest series will take place near the Battersea Power Station.
