    Well done Alcumbria.
    Perfect timing with the weather - lashing rain today.

    I set off at 9.00p.m on Friday and had an amazing day. We got mist on the first three tops and it was misty along the dodds but just as day was breaking all the clouds dissapeared and we had a perfect day finishing at 7.40p.m
    Hi Al, Congratulations! Saw your lights bobbing down hall's fell and was going to come out and say hi but was trying to get a few hours shut eye in the car before Rods round.

    Rod was doing very well on leg 1 and 2 and pretty much on schedule. Strong finish to leg 2 but I think he stopped near Wasdale? Bad luck Rod, great day out and happy to help for 43

    Sunny at Peterborough but a bit flat, arguably.

    22:40 sounds good to me too Alcumbria.

    Bad luck Rod.

    Rod was going well over leg 2, and looked strong as he left Dumail, big shame that the wheels fell of at Scafell. Well run Rod, as Anthony said happy to help with 43

    Hi

    Thanks for the update.

    Sorry it didn't work out Rod. I texted you (although knowing you would be running so didn't expect a reply) as was struggling to get over to Honistor. Hopefully you'll give it another go sometime!

    Just to say thanks to all who volunteered. We had a great day - I certainly can't blame the weather this time. I did fall apart quite amazingly and suddenly on Scafell. Not even the emergency honey sachet could fix it. I need a few more mountain miles to prepare for this. I'll be back.....Rod
