Was doing the Trigger today in the opposite direction, and Pavel, Eugene and Eoin came past on Bleaklow... Pavel was leading by 15 seconds from Eugene, with Eoin Keith a further 2 or 3 minutes behind.
Moving at a decent pace given the conditions, certainly comparsble to at least mid-pack pace in the Trigger, amazing to think they'll keep it up for possibly a couple of days before sleeping!
The leaders in the full race are now just through Hawes, sub 29 hours; chapeau.
I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!
Probably going out tonight to meet up with them around Malham. I'm rooting for Sarah Fuller - 41, but know Carol Morgan as well and good luck to them all. Bet they haven't seen much of the view!
Just got back from a run up Pen-y-ghent. I could see headtorches coming up the hill so I stopped at the top for a bit and spoke to some competitors!
I went out to Malham last night and saw my friend Sarah and others plodding on through the mud and mist.They have to carry a lot and are spending a lot more time in the dark than daylight. A real test of endurance.
3 horse race now out of Bellingham. Noticed they took a faster route via Gib Shiel so expecting penalties....
