    Bob Record!?

    I heard a rumour that the record had gone. From a very good source!...yet there is no chatter! My intermediary (Mrs tfg) MAY have got her wires crossed!?

    They will of done well to beat Billy Bland's 13hrs 53mins. I hope if it's true it was a Brit that took it as Billy did say he wanted it to go but he hoped it was a British runner that got it :-)

    First that I've heard about the record being broken TBH. I was contacted by someone who in their words: "wanted a fast time" but don't know if they went ahead, certainly the weekend they mentioned wasn't good weather. They haven't been in touch since.

    With speculation about a Jornet attempt, + rumour of recent mystery fast BGR - it seems a good time to repeat some thoughts on it all

    Was supporting a round on Friday night and heard rumours of a lakes based runner going for the record. Only did leg 1 so did not actually witness anything.

    oooo this is all so exciting! Lots of whispering, guessing, dismissing, ................. We need the answer! I hope it is a British chap if it is true. Def not Killian as he is injured so you can rule him out as the oversees possibility.
    Personally I'd like Billy to keep it for all time :-)
