Mark is half way through his Arch to Arc attempt.

At the start of the run from London to Dover 85miles!

So my brother is half way across the Englsh Channel, he has made good time so should make a good current at the seperation zone.

Bloody good effort I think. After running 85miles so far then a short rest before getting into the channel at 2:50am in the dark and the cold water of Dover harbour.

He is attempting to be the first person to complete this event without a wetsuit.

He is also at the moment on track to beat the current record done by athletes wearing wetsuits, incredible effort!

It is a very mentally tough challenge, as well as physically, but I think it is something you really have to be very determined to keep going no matter how you feel. It is very impressive, well done Mark!
