54K ultramarathon on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands with only 22% on the flat, the rest on hot and humid hills with 12,000 feet of elevation change.
Pro runner with SCOTT, Eric Senseman, set the new benchmark time of 04:45:05 in the second annual KPMG Tortola Torture with a new course that added two miles and 500 feet of climbing to last year’s. He joined 84 runners on the 33.74 mile course including 28 other individuals.
With just over a month to go until the 2016 Torture, registrations are steadily mounting. A total of 54 people have registered to date: a combination of 18 individual entrants, six 2-person, and eight 3-person teams.
Professional ultrarunner, Eric Senseman, will be running the Torture for the first time on behalf of the prestigious SCOTT Running team and is expected to set a fast pace and a new course record.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
#Regrann from @tortolatorture —————————————————— What a race! After being injured for 3 months, I finished the Tortola Torture 33 miler in 6:29 this past weekend. Epically beautiful course in the British Virgin Islands– through beaches and rainforest, and up and down 30% grade hills! You guys have to come out and experience this one next year. It was incredible! #doEpicShit! >>> Follow @tortolatorture
