I know the same word keeps being used but I'm not sure there's another - awesome. Can't beleive you could keep going in that heat. And over £1,300 for the John Muir Trust so far too - keep em coming :clap:

I was drinking close to a litre every 90mins on Sunday so I've no idea how you managed this. Many congrats to you and Tim and Monty and Scraggles and all for a cause we can all relate to :clap: .
