    We also have a tracker on Martin Yelling who is taking on a 21 day run around the South West Coastal Path. See http://longrunhome.co.uk/ tracking to go live Monday. For his run we are also running 1 second timing for various splits during each day.
    We have trackers out on a few events for logisics support. Also a number of event organisers both here in the UK and overseas testing trackers to see how effective they are on their event locations.
    Lastly - I'm organising with JDRF (Type 1 diabetes research charity) a charity walk around the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, and needless to say to make the event easier to run - all walkers have trackers.http://live.opentracking.co.uk/jdrf3peaks16/

    Looks like Alicia is doing well.

    Les Barker has cancelled his attempt this weekend due to the forecast. He'll be trying again another weekend. Be interesting to see what the others do/how they get on. Good luck all!

    Kerstin did fantastic completing in sub 22 hours, the weather was appalling I have seen attempts grind to a halt in one or two legs of that, but she battled through it for almost all her legs.

    Well done to her and all the support. I had one eye on the tracker and one eye on the weather outside. Very impressive and strong!

    A group came through Honister yesterday while I was up there. It was about 17.30 and the guy on the round was possibly called Rob. Anyone any idea who it was and how he got on?
