    Tracker lost contact halfway down, but now looks like she finished at 0652, which would, I think, be 5 days 23hrs 51mins. Amazing.

    Edit: looks like the confirmed time is 5 days 23 hours 49 minutes (too early for maths).

    Amazing stuff. Wainwrights seems to have grasped a lot of people's attention this year with multiple attempts in different styles. 4 attempts for Sabs, shows that she knew she could do it, but also the ability to recover from 1 full round (last year) and getting to day 4 a few weeks ago - when you consider how broken it left Steve and Paul, her powers of recovery are astonishing.

    Interesting Tweet from Steve Birkinshaw:

    Sabrina's Wainwright record stats:
    total=144hr, moving=129hr, resting=15hr (~6 hours sleep)
    Paul T (previous record):
    total=150hr, moving=113hr, resting=37hr.
    Sabs has the amazing physical and mental toughness to keep moving with very little sleep/rest.

    Extraordinary. I watched last night and saw her move on from Duddon quickly , around 11:30pm, I knew then that she was looking for the sub-6 days.

    Following his own run, Steve blogged:
    Joss 125 moving 44 resting
    Steve 115 moving 42 resting

    Interestingly, Steve's plan had been to rest only 25 hrs, allowing him to beat Joss's time while moving less quickly.

    Looking at the 4 runs, Sabrina's moving:resting ratio is an amazing step change.
