So the heat of the day now drifts into the dark of night. High Vis and lights have been added to Ian’s kit as he exited CP 35.
Athletes tend to run together if possible at night for safety and motivation! At this stage Ian and Alister Higgins have come together at a naturally positive time.
Food has continued to be taken on much more than usual so the stage is set now for the night stint. As the guys headed out they looked comfortable and relaxed. Well done chaps great effort and for Ian pretty much bang on schedule!!
The following stretch of the route consists of off road gravel and shingle some steep down hills and rolling up hills. A really difficult type of terrain on tired legs.
