Bob Graham Round

  • 4th July 2015

Ever since I started exploring and loving being in the mountains I've known about the mighty Bob Graham Round. For years I have looked at maps and poured over the route. When the opportunity came to attempt the BGR in 2014 with Rick I was definitely super-keen.

2014 wasn't to be, but after learning from a failed attempt, we gave it another go in 2015, which was far more successful.


Distance 65 Miles
Elevation 27,000 Feet
Time 23:18 Hours

First done way back in 1932 by Bob Graham, 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.
