We are waiting at the first checkpoint for the runners. Much as we thought, there was a sprint for the front and when we passed them at 7 miles, Mike was out in front followed by Torkel with the pack following.
Steve and Ben are at the rear covering the distance right on pace. Obviously Steve learned a lot last year!
We have also just found out that Steve is 42 today, so we will have a birthday celebration over a glass of orange juice on the bus tonight..
