    Looking at this list, a certain theme emerged. First completion was by a woman, Wendy Dodds. Seven years later, another woman, Helene Diamantides, lowered the record by nearly two hours. The next record-breaking run after that was also by a woman, Anne Stentiford. And four of the eight sub-20-hour runs have been by women.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Why would you not choose the round that is fastest as the fastest round?

    Well, with the BG you have to have a witness. To me it does not matter as I am perfectly happy to accept someboy's word on it.

    When Paddy established the 'Welsh Classical Round' he stated that a successful completion does not have to be under 24 hours. The first person to complete the Round, Wendy Dodds, took over 24 hours.
