Not sure how these trackers work but he could have made it into Grasmere and switched it off to save the battery and has finished for the day, the trackers next marker would have been about 10 mins after the last one shown. The journey between Grasmere and Patterdale is not one I'd fancy in the dark.

I got to Grasmere half way through day 3 on my first 2 C2C's, to put it in some perspective.

Not looking good, still showing outside Grasmere.  Fingers crossed.

He did deserve a bit of a rest. I don't know how he does it.

Not looking good.I wonder if he has  aborted and decided to do a bit more of the walk before going home?

He is on the way to Angle Tarn now. Tony, is this too slow for his 5 day attempt with you saying it isn't looking good? He has a nice day today at least, sunshine!

I wouldn't underestimate his stamina, my concern is why did he stay/rest so long at Grasmere.  However he walked 40 miles yesterday and perhaps that was in his plan to even pace/distance over the 5 days making sure that he was well rested before starting each day.

He did mention yesterday that, on a previous attempt, he had stopped at Grasmere, decided to abandon and had a later start the next day, but then decided to keep walking and then walked 50 miles the next day.  Mad.

April,I was a bit surprised by his late start as its out of character.He needs to be at the 80 mile point tonight,around Kirkby Stephen.

Bear in mind that after he descended Kidsty Pike he’ll have a long stretch with not much ascent until Kirkby Stephen and the climb up to Nine Standards so that might help. Plus a lot easier 2nd half, in my opinion.

Well he is continuing out of Shap, so hopefully he has a good evening and stays injury free.

 Seems to be going well despite the late start.Perhaps he will walk through the night and not bother sleeping till tomorrow evening.

 Still going strong.Whatever the outcome its a great effort.When I first walked the coast to coast I was 26 and it took me five days to cover the distance he has covered in two days.

Looks like he's off again after a few hours rest.  Amazing - go Slogger!
