I hope the weather is good and Kilian can come and have an attempt at the Bob Graham. It will be really interesting to see how he gets on.

Why are there so many races on the same weekend?
Wouldn't it make sense to spread them out a bit?

The previous weekend the same team was organising the Brecon Beacons 10 peaks race. The following weekend it was the ROC Mountain Marathon.

All 4 races last weekend were organised by the same company based in Kendal so it makes financial and organisational sense to run them like that. One journey up the road, one setting up of event HQ etc.

Plus, they seem to fill the races up with different people so they're not short of customers. Only one guy did all three it was possible to do. The 4th, is an ultra and overlaps with the Ring of Steall.
