James Garland

Training and Leading Up to the Attempt The Bob Graham Round (BGR) has been a long-term goal for well over a decade since reading ‘Feet in the clouds’ (by Richard Askwith) and listening to fellow runners’ tales about their attempts to follow in the footsteps of Bob Graham.

66 miles, 27,000 feet

Nina Mason

There is lots out there about the ‘BGR’ – books, short films, blogs, and some really excellent Strider reports.

There is no set route you must take, though most stick to the … Continue reading Nina Mason’s Bob Graham Round 2022

Mark Davinson’s Bob Graham Round

Saturday, June 1, 2019

Mark Davinson (Derwentside AC)

Sometimes setting yourself a challenge seems like a good idea. In spring 2011 I first took up running to get fitter and faster for my 5-a-side football.

72M / 27,000'

Mike Hughes

The “Bob Graham Round”, or simply “the BGR” or even just “BG” – there is plenty written about it so no point going into details here, suffice to say is not a race, you are the only entrant, you go when you like, you start and finish at Moot hall in Keswick.
