Bob Graham Round

In 1932 Keswick hotelier Bob Graham set the record for climbing the most Lake District mountains in 24 hours. His record run of 66 miles and 42 Lakeland fells (26,900ft/8200m) has now become popular challenge for mountain endurance athletes and forms one of Britain’s classic ultra mountain marathons. The Bob Graham Round, the Ramsey Round (Scotland) and the Paddy Buckley (Wales) often being referred to as the “Big Three”.

You can now complete the Bob Graham Round over 6days/7nights with Threesixteen. Enjoy stunning mountain scenery, glistening lakes and tarns, far reaching valley views, bubbling streams and cascading waterfalls on this fully guided expedition. After an awesome days walking we will find a quiet wild camp where we will rest, cook and enjoy stunning sunsets. If we are not to tired we may also marvel at the magnificent star bright sky.

Your guide will set a comfortable and sustainable pace and will do everything he can to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Over the 6 days walking we may encounter a range of weathers and in the event of poor weather it may not be possible, for safety reasons, to summit all 42 peaks. Your guide however will try his best to ensure we achieve our objective and complete the challenge.

This is a strenuous walk and for most walkers a testing challenge. It is a rewarding journey in its own right but also a great way to raise money for a charity close to your heart.

Ramsey Round

On Sunday 9th July 1978 Charlie Ramsey after 23 hours and 58 minutes, 56 miles of running and 28,500 feet of climbing became the first person ever to summit all the mountains of Lochaber in a single day. Charlie’s record climb of 24 Munroes (mountains over 3000ft), including Ben Nevis (4413ft) the highest mountain in Britain, stood for over 9 years and even today this awesome 24 hour mountain challenge has only been successfully completed by a handful of ultra athletes. Threesixteen is now offering the Ramsey Round as a guided 5 day (6 night) wild camping expedition. Are you up to the challenge?

Starting and finishing at Glen Nevis Youth Hostel, the traditional start and finish for this challenge event, we will tackle the route anti-clockwise traversing the Mamores first and finishing on Ben Nevis – the Big One. During the expedition we will travel through remote and stunning mountains, follow airy ridges with breath taking views and ascend mountains that will form long lasting memories. At the end of each days walking we will find a wild mountain campsite, cook together and enjoy stunning sunsets and sunrises.

We might be taking longer than an ultra athlete to complete the Ramsey Round but this is still a serious challenge in a remote mountain environment and a high level of fitness is required. Your guide will set a comfortable and sustainable pace and will do everything he can to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Over the 5 days walking we may encounter a range of weathers and in the event of poor weather it may not be possible, for safety reasons, to summit all 24 peaks. Your guide however will try his best to ensure we achieve our objective and complete the course.
