The Bob Graham Round 24 Hour Club


In 1932 Bob Graham of Keswick completed a round of 42 Lake District mountain summits on foot in under 24 hours. He visited many principal peaks, covering a distance of 72 miles and climbing 27 000 feet, almost the height of Mount Everest. This record stood unequalled for 28 years. The Bob Graham Club is open to anyone who completes the Round in under 24 hours starting and finishing in Keswick. The Club now has many hundreds of members who all support others in their attempts. The Round is a classic challenge for long distance fell runners, and Club membership is highly valued and well earned.
