They set off at midnight from Ambleside on Friday, and Janet et al spent a long time trying to catch him en route to offer encouragement and support. We decided to walk in from Langdale and catch him on the Stake Pass, at the approx 58-59 mile mark (not totally sure).
|Here he comes|
|Rob nearest to camera blue!|
|Robs the middle of the 3 blurs!|
He walked with him for a while, tried to offer a cup of tea, crisps (not required), took pictures and offered encouragement until he wanted to jog again. We saw him bravely descend down into Langdale, wishing him well.
We headed out, jumped in the car and went to the finish in Ambleside where we saw Janet. Janet had last seen Rob at Elterwater and said he was 'fading fast'. We saw many of the people on the 55km course jog in and finish.
|Down into Langdale|
|20m from the finish - come on Rob|
|This is Rob after 'coming round' a little!|
