Done and dusted. An easier day today with no hills but still very hot. We started with a river crossing and the water being a bit low made the crossing shorter. Then into the jungle for 4 sections of 6k runs punctuated with medics and compulsory stops. The damaged forest from the fires still make the going a little slower. Camp life is interesting, not only getting to know the different people, but also the ailments have started appearing. Blisters, heat rash, one chap has severe chaffing in his nether regions. We have had one person pull out and 4 Japanese runners took almost 12 hours to complete the first stage, just on dark. Tomorrow we head for deep jungle camp a big day for everyone. Looking forward to just making the day. I have blisters just starting and after all my pre taping to avoid this I am a bit pissed. Geoff going well and strong.
