Bob Graham dates finalised… hopefully!

Posted on December 14, 2011 by Chris Baynham-Hughes

After being given an extremely clean bill of health today at a company ‘Well being screening’ I decided it was time to reveal the planned dates… ok, so Laura and I had a chat last night and agreed them.

My attempt on the Bob Graham round will commence on the 31st May somewhere between 8 & 9pm. If successful this will mean the leg I take complete in the dark will be the easiest navigationally.

Recces are planned for the following dates:

11th Feb – Legs 5 & 1 (Aim: Detailed navigation recce)

3rd-4th March – legs 3 & 4 (Aim: Detailed navigation recce)

14th April – legs 3, 4 & 5 (Aim: Test self against timings)

18th- 19th May – Legs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (Aim: confidence that I’m ready)

Other events planned are:

Hardmoor 55 – Entered

Fellsman – Entries open Jan 1st

Edale Skyline – Entries open in new year

Post BGR attempt I’ve got the Welsh 1000m peaks, the DBR and will finish off the year where this journey started.. the Brecon Beacons Ultra.

Totally chuffed today to confirm that my mountain marathon partner Martin will be joining me for an attempt. He’s got the Marathon des Sables to do first of course!

Now all I need to do is sort out support runners/ witnesses… no big deal then eh! Anybody up for joining me on a recce or fancies being a part of this attempt then I’d love to hear from you!
