    The local village community FB group ticketed him for jumping the red light

    So he's just got to Tan Hill in 25 hours - bloody hell!

    Getting interesting now. Looks to be around 3hrs down on his projected times for a 2d12h finish, but that means he's still got about 2hrs in the bank for the record. Not the greatest weather right now, but should improve through the day. Apparently he was suffering a lot with his stomach yesterday.

    Edit: he's maybe going to claw back about 20 mins on this leg, so about 2h40m down.

    Slipped to nearly 4hrs off his projected pace now. 0320 tomorrow morning is what needs for the record. If he can get to Byrness for 1830ish he'll have maintained that 4hr deficit and have the best part of 9hrs for the Cheviots. Took him just less than 10hrs on The Spine (though minus The Cheviot itself). Close, and a long night ahead!

    He's finished and it's a new record: 2 days 16 hours and 46 minutes

    Martin Stone is going to have a difficult job working out what is the most meritorious long-distance achievement of 2020!
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Another brilliant effort from the ‘summer of challenges’ I really like how much of an all round nice guy he seems
