    It is hard to imagine just how rough the ground they are crossing must be!

    Does anyone know how Eoin did? There seems to be no mention of him anywhere.

    Every time I look at this event it fills me with dread and foreboding. To even think of entering it takes balls.

    Eoin came in with 4 others a few hours after the loop 2 cut off. He had no compass and a broken shoulder.

    Rain made the route a mud bath.

    There is a few short videos on Eoin's page that are worth watching.

    Oh no, that's terrible. I'll go and catch up on some reports now.
