the madness continues.

matteo tenchio turned back after starting 29

and christian mauduit missed the time limit.

the difficulty of the course is evident when you consider the calibre of runners who have fallen short.

64 runners are attempting 30,

which will be a number just as unimaginable as the 72 who cracked the 24 hour/100 mile mark….


that is, if all 64 make it.


the day is already heating up

fortunately they are on the trail with a lot of shade to protect them from the sun.

after 30 yards there will only be 5 more trail loops to survive to reach the road.

the belief among the runners of big’s is that;

if you make it back to the road

you can make to the end of the day.

how many will reach the road

and a clear shot at 48?
