Helsinki – At 17hrs in to the race…

William (earlier today) with the (still) current Men's and Women's leaders Janne Klasila of Finland & Sumie Inagaki of Japan

At 17hrs, William has increased his position a little to 27th place (up from 29th at 16hrs) and now has clocked-up 138.07 km.

With seven more hours to go, and 62 km more to reach the 200 km mark, William has his work cut out for him – but knowing William he will start digging deep to gain every possible extra meter.

I’ll be signing off for a short while to (hopefully) grab a little sleep before the final stages of the race.
