Radio 2 this morning told me that Marcus was vying for the lead on the final day. Had to check your training log to see what you'd been up to. Alas, not you this year.

Marcus was well ahead when we saw him this morning while up in the Beacons (supporting a teammate). Had heard that the Radio 2 sports presenter was doing the race but believe he got timed out/retired after day 3?

You heard right. He says he'll be back in 2019. He was waxing lyrical about just how tough the terrain was. Great to hear it on mainstream media. He says he twisted his R ankle shortly before the race and after 3 days it had swollen too much to keep going.
