The Challenge

A friend of mine recently said ‘set yourself a real challenge’, (you know who you are now see what you’ve made me do!). Well I did, the trip up Scafell Pike from Langdale was challenging for a first day on the fells for over a year. Having now completed that I think I need another, The Lakes 3000ft Peaks in 24hrs sounds about enough. According to Ken Wilson’s book ‘The Big Walks’ thats 16 to 20 hours and 46 miles and includes 11,000ft of ascent.
According to friends I’m Mad, but I’ll give myself enough time to train and set a target of completing the round before this time next year.
What then….’The Bob Graham Round?’
