A hero webmaster :-)
After several days having big problems with the live-gps system, wich usually sends pic. & gpsdata live to you on worldrun.org, my webmaster has found a solution to the problem. If it works it certainly wont be the first time he solves the tecnical obstacles - both in wr1 & wr2 :-)
...You can see the pic. from todays mountain-stage at "gallery" in the menu. Tomorrow we should have gps-tracking back online via SportsTracker wich I experimented a bit with during the last kms today.
THANKS to Kasper it appears to put the documentation back online :-)
If it all works tomorrow I'll aim at beeing back to the usual daily distances, ca. 40km, again. The last few days has been very short stages as I dont like to do running which isnt properly documented. If at all possible the documentation should be made public and the latest tracking technology used :-) And we seem to be at that point again after afew days 'hickup' !
... The reason for this concearn w. proper documentation is that extreme ultraruns like this are in their nature difficult to proove (and over the years unfortunately there has been a few attempts to 'cut corners'), so to take it seriously - the documentation needs to be in place !
