Bob Graham was a Keswick guest house owner and keen fell runner who set out in 1932 to make a continuous round of 42 peaks (one for every year of his age) in his beloved Lake District during a single 24 hour period. His incredible feat set a record that remained unbeaten for 28 years despite many attempts.
Today many people have completed the 24 hour round but it still remains one of the most demanding challenges available to athletes or mountaineers.
At Wandering Aengus Treks we have taken this gold standard event and turned it into a remarkable mountain walking holiday. By devoting a whole day to each of the five legs of the 24-hour Bob Graham Round, we have brought this amazing route into the realm of possibility for the mere mortals among us. However, even over five days it remains a significant challenge with an average of 15 miles and up to 6,000 feet of ascent on each day.
This is a strenuous round of 42 fells in the Lake District. Daily distances walked range beween 12 and 16 miles with up to 6,000 feet of ascent on each day. The total distance covered is around 66 miles and the total ascent is over 26,000 feet - not far off the height of Mount Everest!
£545 per person inclusive of 6 nights' accommodation in ensuite twin-share room on bed & breakfast basis, baggage transfer, full route notes and/or guidebook, and all necessary maps plus an emergency contact number.
Single rooms are available. We only apply a supplement for single accommodation when there is a direct cost to us and we cap this at a maximum of £25 per night. Solo walkers pay a supplement of £8 per night, plus any single supplement required.
