Descripción

Guidebook to walking and running the Bob Graham, the Paddy Buckley and the Charlie Ramsay Rounds - Britain's three most challenging long-distance mountain rounds. Includes practical information and advice, notes on access and environmental impact, plus insights and strategies from the likes of Jasmin Paris, Nicky Spinks, Charlie Ramsay, Wendy Dodds and Paddy Buckley. Designed to inform and inspire, this book is orientated at both walkers and runners (against the clock, or otherwise) keen to discover these epic and extremely challenging routes. Showcasing spectacular photography, tales from the Rounds, and the history of each - as well as invaluable information to help with planning and preparing - this book is a must for anyone considering to embark on one (or all!) of these iconic Rounds. Known to mountain runners as three of the most difficult 24-hour challenges in the world, the Big Rounds are, each in their own right, a long-distance classic, rich in the history and culture of 'fell' or hill running. Collectively, the 'Big 3' take in 113 mountain summits (including the highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland), over 25,000meters (83,000 feet) of ascent and nearly 300kms (183 miles) across three of Britain's most distinct mountain ranges - the Snowdonia National Park in Wales, the Lake District National Park in England, and a vast area of Lochaber in the highlands of Scotland
