    Parachute route should pop it back in place.

    He's going to go as quick as he can. With "some friends". Probably before or after Glencoe Skyline.
    In an interview by IRunFar.
    Cool.

    from the horses mouth:
    "there are still two races left. In two weeks is Glen Coe Skyline in Scotland, and before or after that I want to try the Bob Graham Round which has been motivating me for a while. It’s the history of fell running, and being the history of fell running means it’s the history of running in the mountains and ultrarunning. Then to finish Ultra Pirineu in Spain, but I don’t know if I’ll run the ultra or the marathon."

    So I guess that's soon, then

    ....it's all downhill from here.

    also, when asked about strategy and nav he said:
    "Yeah, navigation is important at Bob Graham, so I want to go there and check some days and do all the route at once and then rest a bit, and then go back. We will see how the weather and everything looks to find the best days. Yeah, navigation is important."

    Might make this weekend's LDMT even more interesting if he comes flying through at some point.

    Flying through would have been a literal description probably - possibly not the best day for a BG!!!

    My 5 bet is looking better and better as the year goes on.

    He was still in Norway yesterday, so i don't think he's going to get it done before the Skyline. What's the long range forecast for the 23rd weekend?

    All the best potential support runners will be at Great Whernside anyway
    The land at the end of our toes goes on and on and on.
