    LONG AGO, even before the marathon, came ultra running. Races which demand willpower and stamina beyond 26 miles 385 yards. Older in concept, they have just taken more time to become popular. Now, with hundreds worldwide to choose from, you can race for days to the holy site of Muktinath in the Nepalese Himalayas or try the grand slam comprising Jungle Ultra, Mountain Ultra, Desert Ultra and Ice Ultra, taking in the Amazon Rainforest...

    WATER POLO BARNSTAPLE under-19s did the double over Newton Abbot with a narrow win away and convincing victory at home. In South Devon, Barnstaple expected a test from tough opposition in a shallow and narrow pool. And so it proved as final-quarter goals from Michael Taylor and Rob Squires clinched a 16-15 win. They trailed 9-8 at half time but the third quarter saw the tide turn as the Barnstaple boys' superior fitness shone...

    THERE was only one point between Barnstaple and Bracknell when they last met at Pottington Road. Nearly five years on nothing could separate them as an entertaining clash finished in an 8-8 draw. In January 2009, a Bracknell pack inspired by former England forward Chris Sheasby drove over for a last-play try that clinched an 18-17 win. This time it was Barnstaple who came from behind, but Toby Williamson's second-half score was only...
