After breaking the Weardale Way Record in 2022 Stephen raised the bar by taking on the iconic lakes fell running challenge of the Bob Graham Round (Link for more info). This epic route takes in 42 peaks in the Lake District, 25,000+ feet of ascent and 66 Miles of running, all to be completed within 24 hours! After 7 months of specific training that saw Stephen visiting the lakes every other weekend he set off on the 17th June at 3am aiming for a time of 18 hours. The route had 5 legs, all of which he had a runner on to support him along the way/witness each peak, before they dropped off and allowed the next to join in the fun. After a solid day Stephen came running into Keswick, up the steps at moot hall & hit the doors with a time of 17 hours 30 minutes, placing himself within the top 30 quickest times ever. Not bad for a 1st year fell running. Watch this space!
