The slowest guy has taken nearly 15 hours to the M62? Am I right? There is hope for us all :D

It's about time you set off.


 :D This was a right cockup intending to meet them at Thornton. :D Got there and waited an hour and a quarter and no sign. Thought they had done a Pav last year and headed down the road to Elslack! So walked home low and behold got in to the house and they arrived where I had been sitting at the same time as I arrived home :-[


Must be slowing up now. :o 


Just realised the diversion @ East Marton along the canal and road to Gargrave. Cannot see why as the official route isn't that boggy. :o


Try again tomorrow at Pinhaw and sit there for hours if necessary. ;D

And this is the time when you turn up just as the last person has scampered past  ;)
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

Third place 372 Ian Magee has taken the wrong route!! There is a diversion there along the canal and road to Gargrave. He has kept to the official PW. Hopefully he will not be penalised.


6;00AM. So did the fourth placed the phenomenal lady 354 Emma Hopkinson who seems to be pulling back the above's lead over her.. Brilliant. O0


Quite a few others sticking to the official PW not the diversion. Don't blame them a bit shorter. ;D

Up early and eager to go to watch the start, only an hour n half drive. The leading two are nearing pen y ghent so looks like the record is going to be smashed! O0

A gap opening over Penygent! 436 Wouter Huitzing is going for it. Already 2K in front of 314 Simon Bourne. He must be gunning it to open up a lead of 2k over Fountains fell and Penygent..


 Now over 5k off Penygent into Horton. The leader must be running bloody fast even after 22 hours. 14.6 miles to go should finish by 10am. Would that be a record? Considering the diversions et al adding to the routes length,


Victory in sight unless a tragic mishap or navigation error happens. Doubt the latter at this stage.

I trust that Dave/Slogger didn't have too much to drink last night, he is Number 176.  Good luck, take it easy. :)

Pavel, Eoin are in the front group, it is starting to spread out.  Need to keep two maps open so that I can keep track of the Challengers as well.

Oh dear :(  At least 5 doing the Spine Challenger have made a fatal mistake! Plenty of PWayers do this. Taken the wrong track for Thornton and heading towards Earby. tragic :(


Plus two doing a pav and heading down the road to Elslack. Should have been up there in hindsight to direct them.  ;)

And a couple have missed the turn off and continued along the road.  I think that a few did this last year and then returned by a path a little further along the road via Wood House which would be a bit further.

Oops me too!

Just caught up with the 5 in Earby and put them on the nearest track to regain the PW. They seemed to be pretty strong so should finish. My good deed for the day done. ;D


Now back on PW O0
