The 2012 John ‘O’ Groats to Lands End has completed its sixth day and of the eleven starters 4 remain. The longest multiday race on the UK ultrarunning calendar is a serious challenge with the runners having 16 daily stages to cover the 860 mile distance from the North of Scotland the most south-westerly point in the UK at Lands End.
The runners have to average 55+ miles each day and the pressure has had its toll on the field. Rainer Koch, no stranger to long multiday and stage races, has a 25 hour lead after 6 days.

The weather in the UK is wet and windy over the last few days and the showers look set to continue for the next 10 days or so.

1. Rainer Koch 53:36:55
2.Tom Haines 78:09:35
3.Tim Elliott 88:49:46
4.Tom Forman 89:24:02
