On the cover of Outdoor Fitness magazine: Charlie, our head guide, navigates for UK ultra runner, Damian Hall, on his Bob Graham Round

We’re the UK’s leading specialist in supported Bob Graham rounds over 24, 48 or 72 hours. We know the route inside out: not only have we run it ourselves; we’ve helped countless others to Bob Graham success. Will you be the next to join the Bob Graham Club?

Thanks for supporting me on my Bob Graham Round. Your navigation in cloud/dark was spot on and you were very good at motivating me to keep moving forwards and distracting me from my tiredness/pain. If anyone wants to have a crack at the round then I would wholeheartedly recommend you.

The Bob Graham Story

The 42-summit, 66-mile Bob Graham Round was born back in 1932 when Bob Graham, a Keswick hotelier, marked his 42nd birthday by completing it in 24 hours. Taking in 42 of the highest peaks in the Lake District, it is no easy feat: only just over 2,000 of the hardiest fell runners have managed to follow in Bob’s footsteps in the 85 intervening years, to join the exclusive Bob Graham Club.

Achieving a successful round takes more than just fitness and grit: it takes mental strength, physical agility, mountain skills, route knowledge and 100% commitment to the goal in hand. Traditionally, aspirant Bob Graham Club members would train intensively on the course for a year or more, preparing themselves and learning the route, before recruiting a support team of experienced fell-runners with whom to tackle the challenge.

But there is another way! Read on ...
