So after the hike looked like guys were in 42nd spot, but tough to tell as some times didn’t register. they have now completed the 3km run around Waterford which only took them 3 hours (how many coffees did Sean stop for)?.  Anyway back out on the boat now they are now running in 38th spot, having made up a few. Also, they are at the front of a bunch of Irish teams (10 in fact) so will be interesting to see if they can maintain that

 

just one note. the opening hike was meant to be 20km. the leaders did it in 1h38. That’s a hell of a time for the start of a race like this for what was almost a half marathon. i suspect it wasn’t 20km..:)
