Amazing achievement Dan! 

Me and a couple of friends are thinking of giving this a go. Not planning to beat your time, the main aim is just to finish. Do you have an email address I could contact you on to get some information and advice?

Great unsupported effort. The supported fkt is the course record from the ultra held in July. It stands at 25 hours 9 minutes by Howard Dracup.
