THE BOB GRAHAM ROUND

The 66 mile, 27,000 ft circuit of 42 of the highest peaks in the English Lake District within 24 hours. First done way back in 1932 by Bob Graham, hotelier of Keswick, Cumberland, at the age of 42, the 42 Peak Round has become a testing ground for the supremely fit. Each summer around 100 of the most highly tuned ultra-distance fell runners will attempt the 27,000 ft of ascent within the allotted 24 hours. Only one in three will return to the Keswick Moot Hall before the clock runs down. Most of the rest will be back again ...! Many Ellenborough AC runners have completed the feat and are now members of the club.
