Bob Graham Round

The Bob Graham Round is a classic fell running challenge, with runners attempting to summit 42 Lake District peaks in 24 hours. Runners start at the Moot Hall in Keswick at a time of their choosing and can run the route either clockwise or anti-clockwise, finishing back at the Moot Hall. Exact distance and ascent depend on the choice of route, but it is generally around 66 miles with 27,000ft (8,000m) of climbing.

A number of Striders have attempted the round and 3 have completed the round in under 24 hours.
