    Just out of interest, does anyone know the quickest time that someone has done it solo and unsupported?

    Billy's splits are at http://www.mh.k313.com/mh/fell/bg/fastestBG.html, along with those for Mark Hartell's 14:54 and Stuart Bland's 14:56.

    I think that's the old site - the new links - http://www.macclesfield-harriers.co....fastestBG.html don't work.

    Thanks Rombald. Interesting to note then that Billy Bland actually had nearly a quarter of an hours rest at Honister ?!? Unreal. Must be a story there I guess ?

    Surely he just took a big jump off the top of halls fell and landed on the A66?

    He hadn't been on the go for over 8 hours then though!

    Did Billy do a full week at work, then the bg on the weekend and back to work on monday? If so this is what Kilian would have to do to match him, or beat him.
    Maybe one of Kilian's quests should be a trip to Keswick Job centre :w00t:

    Don't get me wrong Kilian is a phenomenal athlete and probably would equal or beat Billy, but they hardly live the same lifestyle now do they? Think this should be taken into account when comparing the 2.
