The Grand Round
« on: 20:21:15, 22/08/20 »
John Kelly finished his running/cycling "grand round" challenge last night.  It took him 130 hours, 43 minutes (c5.5 days) to :-

* Run the Paddy Buckley Round in Snowdonia - 61 miles, 47 peaks, 28,000 ft ascent
* Cycle 180 miles, 10,000 ft ascent
* Run the Bob Graham Round in the Lakes -  66 miles, 42 peaks, 27,000 ft ascent
* Cycle 200 miles
* Run/walk the Ramsay Round in Sctoland - 60 miles, 24 peaks, 28,000 ft ascent

The Paddy Buckley and Bob Graham were completed in less than 24 hours.  Had some pretty gnarly weather on the last cycle and on the Ramsay Round too.

An amazing achievement.

Especially as he recently set an FKT of The Pennine Way. (until Damian Hall betters it).
