Yesterday I had the privelage to support Tahr off this site, during his attempt to complete the Bob Graham round.
For those who don't know of this challenge, it is a 72 mile circuit around the Lake District which takes in 42 peaks and climbs a total of 27,000ft. All this in under 24hrs.
Thar set off from Keswick at 11pm on Friday, running through the night and into the dawn of Saturday, he ran to a set schedule and did not faulter, returning to Keswick after 23hrs and 30 mins of continuous running where he still looked strong, and still had enough energy to make it to the pub for last orders.
I am proud to call him my friend....an inspiration to us all.
Fingers crossed he recovers quick enough to help drag some stags.
