Just seen the horror movie on Facebook of the state of one of the runners feet at the end of the event. How do they carry on. Amazing.

yep, I agree too, glad they didn't time them out at Byrness especially after a 6 hour pause.

Yes but can he keep it up, 15 miles from where he is with less then 10 hours to go.
Whilst he may not agree, as far as I am concerned, as long as he finishes the time doesn't matter.

Maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t the smartest move to take the poor aging dog up in the first place.
Maybe??!!!  Unless the poor dog had a sudden stroke or similar it was an unbelievably stupid move.

as Fernman said above, humans get treated the same on Everest.
Humans deciding to climb Everest know the risks and the possible outcome - this dog had no choice in the matter.

I'm not commenting on the final decision in case the dog did have a sudden totally out of the blue collapse but I would have called the MRT if I couldn't carry my dog - admittedly that would have passed the buck to them but I hope they wouldn't have minded; I believe they go out for cragfast sheep for which I am full of admiration for them.

It's amazing that he can bring himself to stand again once he rested in the hut.
He seems to be progressing pretty well.

Daphné Derouch now placed 4th woman presumably after one 3 hour penalty, presumably the 1st 3 hour penalty had been served elsewhere.
