With a time of 4 hours, 35 minutes and 47 seconds, Avery took a handsome 9 minutes and 18 seconds off Eric Senseman’s 2016 record-setting time (04:45:05).

A record 118 runners have signed up for the 2018 KPMG Tortola Torture. This year sees 47 individuals, 12 two-person and 17 three-person teams on the entry list. The number of individuals and two-person teams has doubled over last year.
Twenty six of this year’s competitors are from overseas: 11 from USA, 8 from St Croix, 6 from Puerto Rico, 3 from Turks & Caicos, 2 from the UK, and 1 from Trinidad & Tobago.
A screaming hot adventure through the winding roads of Tortola Island. The steep ascents and descents combined with the beautiful blue water views will leave you breathless. This is a bucket list race that will be one you will remember for the rest of your life!
2018 Winner & New Record Holder
If you consider yourself a runner of any distance from 5k to ultra this race needs to be on your radar for next year. Vacation in Tortola, go on a once in a lifetime run around the island, then spend the rest of the day celebrating at the finish line. A destination race that can’t be topped.
2018 Ladies Winner
After that easy 10, the race begins a series of relentless, incredibly steep, and constant series of climbs and descents, that systemically squash your soul. And, this goes on until the very last mile.
It was probably the best organised race that I have ever ran anywhere in the world.
