OSs Andy Symonds (H 94-99) and Sam Fisher (W 96-01) Complete the Bob Graham Round

In 1932 a 42 year old hotelier in Keswick by the name of Bob Graham ran the 66 mile, 27,000 ft. circuit of the highest 42 peaks in the English Lake District within 24 hours.

It has since become the test of the super fit and each summer around 100 of the best fell runners attempt to complete the gruelling course within the allotted 24 hours.

Only one in three will complete the course within the time, the rest will inevitably be back to try again.

In recent months, two Old Sedberghians have completed the Bob Graham Round within the allotted 24 hours.

In May Andy Symonds finished in an astounding time of 15:58. Andy is an accustomed fell runner and regularly competes at the highest level.

In June another Sam Fisher completed the Bob Graham course in an impressive time of 21:19. Sam also recently came 10th overall in the Leeds Half marathon in a time of 1:16.

Both Andy and Sam are former Wilson Run winners.
