Woman conquers 20 peaks in record time
Helen Bonsor sets a new women’s world record for the “Tranter’s Round” in Scotland. The Mammut Pro Team athlete from the Lake District conqueres the 63 km route with its 6,100 m of ascent and descent in only 12 hours and 25 minutes on Friday, July 14, 2017. Bonsor is currently the fastest woman to complete this varied and challenging route. Named after its original vanquisher, Phillip Tranter, the “Tranter’s Round” boasts no fewer than 20 sizeable peaks across two chains of peaks and is still considered to be a 24-hour tour. Helen Bonsor starts the tour at 05:57 a.m. and achieves her objective of completing the circuit in a little over half of the original time at 06:22 p.m.
