Heading to Great Calva on the first leg of the Bob Graham Round, 3 kbThe first (or last) section of the classic 24hr challenge is a route of contrasts. From the sanitised track and crowds of Skiddaw to the loneliness of Great Calva; from the pathless section to cross the Caldew to the exposed scrambling of Hall's Fell; from quintessential Lakeland to something more Pennine. Often done at night, particularly on an attempt on the full round - the durations given reflect this.

12.28 miles, 19.76 km, 1,562m ascent, 3 – 5 hours. Keswick

In reply to Bob: Fantastic - this set of 5 Route Cards covers the entire BGR.

It's my big goal for next year. Anyone else planning a BGR attempt soon?

Definitely not.

Even though my excuse for not entering the Lakeland 100 was that I'd rather do a BGR. And I figure that the rate my knees are wearing out, if I'm ever to do one it'll need to be soon...

I'd like to do both! But definitely not in the same year. I'm hoping to do the Lakeland 50 again next year, but only if I manage the BGR on my first attempt, which is a very big 'if'...
