    Daaaaarn, I missed this! Sounds crazy -i.e. fantastic. I.e very Sharnie-esque! Best of luck! Goooooooo Sharnie! \o/\o/\o/\o/

    21:40 I like it!  Judging by Sharnie’s position there appears to be road(s) ahead that are going pretty much directly away from Haltwhistle – very little wastage of effort.  So, assuming the plan is max distance rather than max height or max island hopping  I would say the plan is looking good.

    On these dot watching events nearly always seem to end up with some runners speeding down the motorway with their trackers still on!

    Sadly I won’t be able to watch much more during the event as I’ll be out tomorrow morning.

    Are you allowed to trespass? I’d nip across the farmers fields and through back gardens.

    I’m up here in the Costa del Cumbria, first time ever.  I honestly think it’s a myth… very drizzly, damp and cold. Hope Sharnie is warm.and dry 🏃‍♀️

    It’s a bit grim up north. Wet and windy, but not cold. This pic is Sharon’s 45 mile point, but remember,  the mileage you see on the tracker is as the crow flies, not actual miles run. So when I last saw her, she had ran 48 miles, but 35 as crow flies.

    She’s in a good happy place though, plodding on and enjoying it all. I wont see her again till morning.

    Atmospheric pic, Ian!  Looks like Sharnie is heading next up for Moffat and may well be the second person to break outside the 50 mile circle.  I guess by the end of the race she could easily end up over 40 miles (as the crow flies) away from any other participant.  Bedtime beckons for non participants…

    Seen at 67 event miles ( as crow flies) but 85 ish actual miles ran. Had a few rough patches overnight,  feet are wet and starting to hurt. Change of shoes, socks, dry top etc and restocked food and water.

    Mentally in a good happy place and ready to tackle todays miles.

    Looks like she’s doing a fantastic job,  know you’ve both done lots of these type of things involving running through the night on your own but I still can’t get over how mentally strong you’d have to be  – go Sharnie! !!

    Looking good this morning so far. Incredible but not sure what the weather has in store today?
