THE LAKE DIS­TRICT’S BOB GRA­HAM ROUND

Trail (UK) - - #Everestanywhere -

Tra­di­tion­ally a 24-hour fell run for the elite (or crazy), this route takes in 42 of Lake­land’s high­est moun­tains in a 119km (74 mile) loop. It can be com­pleted in a five- or six-day walk, bag­ging you very nearly the height of the world’s tallest moun­tain.

The route starts and ends in Keswick and will take you over Skid­daw, Blen­cathra, Helvel­lyn, Fair­field, High Raise, Bowfell, Scafell, Pil­lar and Great Gable in an epic moun­tain fest!
