Helsinki – latest news at 12hrs

Latest report from Alan in Helsinki :

William - taking a break and coming on strong

The runners have now made their 2nd turn-around (next and final one at 18hrs). William answered the call of nature just before the 12hr mark and has therefore dropped to 15th place (being less than 30 seconds behind the new #14 at the half-way mark). William will be taking a short break, partly to rest but also to refuel a little – this will be his first actual break in the event, having been on-track for almost 12hrs non-stop. William is currently running very much “to plan” and should come back stronger for a brief rest.

Alan also tells me that “Paul (Hart) and Mark (Cockbain) seem to have revived a little, as they start to count down the hours.”
