Bob Graham Round

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how familiar you are with this piece of trail running folk lore but the Bob Graham Round s pretty legendary. I think only one in three attempts make it.  It's over 42 peaks and has over 8,000mtrs of vert and you must complete it in 24hrs. (Killian Jornet broke the record, I think last year, with a 12.52).  Nice little film about it here.

He's back now, not sure if it was a holiday with the Bob Graham thrown in or the other way round.

FP, have you read Feet in the Clouds?

More than one guy's story of his attempts to finish the BGR, it enterainingly covers the history of British fell running.
