    Fair enough, perhaps I mis-read between the lines of your post...

    I do however think that should the likes of Carl Bell or Ricky Lightfoot make an attempt, they would certainly now be looking at KJ's record time as the benchmark, and not 13:53......

    Having scraped round Leg 1 slightly outside the 23hr schedule (admittedly in the middle of winter and coming off Blencathra in the dark), I'm in awe of anyone who can even contemplate a fast round

    Maybe the likes of Mo Farah would have to take up fell running to beat that.
    Or (IMO) the likes of Francois Dehaene, Paul Capel Gil, and Jim Walmsley could get close.

    Well I thought Carl looked great in his Cumbria vest and I was very impressed that hed put a clean one on for leg five.

    Which other fellrunner would do that??

    Professionals/Amateurs! Completly pointless discussion. A time is a time regardless of who set it. As the recent GPS debate has hightlighted you can have all sorts of debates about who has adavantages. I don't think anybody could argue that a Keswick based runner has advantages over a Lincoln based runner, do we have different records for them?

    Never mind the invaluable support requried throughout the day from "amateur" runners.

    It was a great day and I loved trawling though social media trying to get snippits of information about his progress.

    Didn't seem to bother Billy, don't think it should be bothering anyone else.

    Not mine I should say. Pinched it from Twitter. Agreed, it's a cracking shot.
