Toma Coconea (ROU) has extraordinary levels of endurance – no wonder, then, that he's known as the 'Running Romanian'. On days like today, when flying options are limited, he will march on on foot, covering distances that would make many shudder. He is currently moving towards Turnpoint 8 Eiger at up to 10km/h. Not bad for a 44-year-old with a bag full of flying gear. He is currently in 11th place.
