I started reading Peter Gold's report - quite different! But I got blocked after the first section - seemingly I have to register/sign in.
That happened to me too but I went to the home page and opened it from there ok.

I read Peter's report OK.
Do you think he was still sleep deprived when he wrote it?

Here is Shelli Gordon's story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Taz3PzcGpFw&fbclid=IwAR3m-MYsmIImDeVqExgu-SxmmdoPCBDMXCubjCzWjIUYmUsgcy0a27wjxOQ

Had to loan her my sleeping bag at Bellingham CP as she was very hypothermic, it even stars in the film!  It was touch and go whether she would be allowed to leave but thankfully she was able to carry on.

Well you asked for it, my first one of 5 in 2013, I got within 16 miles of the finish but the weather prevented a finish. 2014 I finished.http://sloggersspineracejan2013.blogspot.com/

Thanks sussamb just caught up with that. Good write up.  I guess the summer races will be off?

They could still do the race.The competitors could run on a treadmill for seven days with three hours sleep a night.The one who covers the greatest distance is the winner.
