    Jack Kuenzle record attempt

    American mountain-runner Jack Kuenzle is trying for the BG record. 4h37m to Dunmail seems a good start. Live tracking at https://live.opentracking.co.uk/jkbg...kK8tK6dRji0_KI
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    It looks like he and Killian Jornet did the High Raise/Sargeant Man section in different order, and now they are converging back, Jack is slightly ahead at this stage.

    Hadn't twigged that KJ went High Raise first but looking at his times here http://www.bobgrahamclub.org.uk/inde...rd=mens_summer it seems so.

    Taking half an hour off the record is really impressive.

    Without me you'd be one place nearer the back

    Very impressive. Even more so if consider it is an hour and half quicker than Billy's time.
    Must be the carbon road shoes he used for the run in

    I've now updated the site with Jack's times - http://www.bobgrahamclub.org.uk/inde...rd=mens_summer Worth noting that he didn't record *any* stopped time at the road crossings.

    Interesting reports from the pacers. The thing that stands out for me is that Jack was wearing Trailflys, and that the pacers could catch him up on the downhills, but were getting left behind on the climbs. I think he could shave another 10mins in a pair of PB Racers or Mudclaws.
