Gemma’s Bob Graham Round

Gemma’s Bob Graham Round – 14th/15th June 2019 This is a bit late… apologies. But I did the Bob Graham Round on the 14th and 15th of June and I guess it is a bit of a tradition that you tell the tale. So here goes… Over the years, running has become less and less about racing, times […]

Robs Ill Fated Paddy Buckley Round

Even before I had completed my Bob Graham Round last year I had decided that my next big challenge was going to be a Paddy Buckley Round.

Keith’s Bob Graham Round

Whilst receeing the Wasdale to Honister section of the Bob Graham round I took a breather on the summit of Pillar. Like previous reconnaissance of the round, it was a fine day. I surveyed the surrounding peaks, and way in the distance Blencathra, forming its own massif, brought an intriguing question to myself, “Keith, do […]
