Dan Barnett is performing heroically in the Marathon des Sables in Morocco, in 61st position after 2 legs. Gary P, 10 years older, is nevertheless 369th, out of the remaining 1001 competitors. Excellent performances from both. After 4 stages, Dan is now (Thursday) 73rd (after over 23 hrs of running), with Gary slipping back to 810th, but still there, still fighting. Friday – Dan crossed the line in an amazing 58th place on the final stage 5, putting him 65th overall, in a time of 28hrs 48 mins 6 seconds.Gary obviously (and understandably) struggled on the final stage, and was placed 817th overall (in 54hrs 30mins 23 seconds)
