    Any way of reading this article? I am not subscribing to the Telegraph.

    Have just sent you a message with the text of it - I don't think it's a hugely revelatory article, but it's not a bad introductory one.

    Watched the documentary on Netflix last night .... twice, that is some race, the runners looked like they’d been flayed after a couple of laps, definitely worth a watch

    I was "lucky" enough to be crewing this year, so got to see the race close up. Well, the very small parts that you can. i.e. at the campground and at the top of Rat Jaw.

    Most people coming through the first loop at Rat Jaw (about 2/3rd of the way in) looked wiped out by the heat. By the beginning of the second loop for most, the rain/sleet had started and the temperature had dropped by about 25 degrees. I won't be tempted to enter next year .
    The land at the end of our toes goes on and on and on.
