Stunning images from the ÖTILLÖ Isles of Scilly 2016

With around 30km of trail running and over 7.5km of swimming, the ÖTILLÖ Isles of Scilly 2016 Swimrun provided both an awesome physical challenge set against a similarly breathtaking backdrop. Even for the winners, British pairing Richard Stannard and Andrew Fargus, it was an effort of over five hours. Take a look at the images below for a combination of beauty and inspiration.
