So we took 5 days to get to Gargrave and the leader is already past there! Though to be fair we probably only walked until about 5pm  ;D ;D

Does anyone know if they have to stay at the checkpoints for a minimum amount of time?

Good Grief - the leader has done 79 miles today and is almost at Malham - and here's me feeling pleased with myself for completing a 3 mile Parkrun!  :o

Have all of those map view options always been available?  I'm loving the aerial view option.

Only for medical reasons,including lack of sleep.I doubt if they would let anyone run without sleep for more than three days as its a dangerous environment and the runners are often on their own.

Some of the checkpoints are restricted to 30 mins ours is one of them not easy to get them warm and fed and back out in 30 mins but it has put an end to the crowding, it flows much better in here with the new restrictions. I`m looking forward to wednesday to early Saturday when they come through.

20 minutes in and they are starting to drop down off Kinder.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

Looks like theres already a diversion because of the weather - the wind? Other than the first few, the challengers are now avoiding PenYGhent.

Fell was hit by 70mph gusts making conditions on the top too dangerous.A sensible decision considering the runners would be very tired at that point.

Just had a look at http://sandctrust.org.uk/stayatastation/webcams/ribblehead.htm and the wind sounds like it's raging even lower down. 

Wouldn't want to be DinoF on the moors just now.

Only to be expected from someone who has done a 15 hour Bob Graham round and a winter BG in 18 hours (second only to Jim Mann).Most entrants to this race have previously had a trail running/adventure racing background and its the first time we have seen these elite British fell runners tackle this race.If Jim Mann's performance is anything to go on she is in with a realistic chance of winning this race.

Thanks for the info. My daughter is now hooked on this too.
