When a single day spent walking in the mountains is just not enough, we turn to finding a challenge. Whether this is to climb the highest mountains around the UK in 24 hours, to link all the peaks over a certain height in several days (or even just the one day!) or to work through a classic tick list. There are many mountain challenges out there, from the classic charity ones to the seriously long and difficult ones that will test even the fittest of mountaineers. Are you up for a challenge?
LAKE DISTRICT 24 PEAKS
THE BOB GRAHAM ROUND
DURATION: 5 Days
For his 42nd birthday, Bob Graham decided he would link 42 Lake District peaks, by running, in 24 hours. He didn't bet on it becoming a classic mountain challenge! We won't be running it (phew!), instead we will enjoy these peaks of the Lakes over several days, camping in the mountains.
