Tim’s Bob Graham Round

Having travelled down from Aviemore to allow Ian to navigate leg 4 on Jim’s (Pennine) Bob Graham Round, it was a pleasure to find that Tim Roe (Horwich RMI) was on a similar schedule.   We arrived at Honister having cheered another friend - Steve Angus in previously at the Moot Hall and congratulated him on his sub-20-hour round of this 65 miles route over 42 Lakeland Mountains, ascending and descending 28,000 feet all to be done in 24 hours!

Meanwhile at Honister it was all systems go for Katie and the support team in order to see Tim off and get to Newlands to run in to Keswick with him.
