Ramsay 2
Damian and Charlie summit Mullach nan Coirean on their successful 2017 round

We’re the UK’s leading specialist in supported 24 hour ‘Rounds’. We’ve led dozens of successful Bob Graham rounds already, and from 2018 we are delighted to offer the same guided service for Scotland’s classic challenge: the Charlie Ramsay. The UK’s highest peak is just one of 24 mountains that you must summit in order to complete this one. Are you tough enough?

Charlie's navigation skills were so impressive when we did the Charlie Ramsay Round together. I'd have been lost several times without him, especially at night. Not only did he keep us on course, on terrain he hadn't been on before, but he'd find clever shortcuts via contouring to save us valuable time. It doesn't matter how fit you are, waste too much time on a 24-hour fell running round and you won't get round in time.

The Charlie Ramsay Story

On Sunday 9 July 1978, Charlie Ramsay of Edinburgh became the first man ever to summit all the mountains of Lochaber in a single day, starting and finishing at the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel. Charlie’s record time – 23 hours and 58 minutes – remained unbroken for nine years.

His route, taking in 24 summits (of which 23 are classified as Munros) is as spectacular as it is brutal. To date, only 109 of the hardiest hill and fell runners – including Mountain Run team members Charlie Sproson, Joe Mann and Damian Hall – have successfully risen to the challenge to join the ranks of official finishers. The current record time stands at 16h 13, set by Jasmin Paris in the summer of 2016.

Bagging a Charlie Ramsay round is not easy. Running one Munro is no mean feat: taking on 23 in quick succession is serious stuff. But if you think you’ve got the fitness, experience and pure grit that it takes to complete the round, read on ...
