A PUB landlord’s experience during an epic rowing race will be shown on TV this month.

Viewers will see how Nick May, of Harwich’s Alma Inn, fared in the Texas Water Safari challenge on Channel 5’s Go Hard or Go Home on January 27. Nick, 44, agreed to take part after responding to a Tweet from the show’s producers.

Along with two other Essex landlords he spent two days negotiating winding river rapids in 40-degree heat in what has been described as the world’s toughest canoe race.

The Texas Water Safari is a 260-mile canoe race which the landlords tackled in two-man canoes.

Nick said: “It was tough at times, but pushing myself to give everything I had, left me with an incredible sense of achievement.”
