  • Seasons: Predominantly spring and summer, but with advice on timed round attempts in the winter from the current record holder, Jim Mann.
  • Centres: England: Keswick/Ambleside/Wasdale Wales: Capel Curig/Blaenau Ffestiniog/Betws Coed/Llanberis/Ogwen Scotland: Fort William/Fersit
  • Difficulty: Each of the three rounds is presented as a 24-hour running challenge, and a week-long backpacking circuit. Both of these options are genuine challenges for experienced outdoors people. However, there is additional information for those who prefer a more relaxed pace. All of the routes are also described as day trips and/or as 'sections' of smaller running or backpacking routes.
  • Must See: The Big Rounds - running and walking the Bob Graham, the Paddy Buckley and the Charlie Ramsay rounds - is a guide to Britain's three most challenging long-distance mountain rounds, and the people who love them. These routes are grand, circular tours of the Lake District, Snowdonia and Lochaber, and the book includes a full guide to each round for both walkers and runners, the history of each round, and advice from running and backpacking experts.

Guidebook to walking or running Britain's three most challenging long-distance mountain rounds: the Bob Graham Round (Lake District), the Paddy Buckley Round (Wales) and the Charlie Ramsay Round (Scotland). Includes practical information and advice, notes on access and environmental impact, plus insights and strategies from the likes of Jasmin Paris, Nicky Spinks, Charlie Ramsay, Jim Mann and Paddy Buckley.

Designed to inform and inspire, this larger format book is aimed at both walkers and runners (against the clock, or otherwise) keen to discover these epic and extremely challenging routes. Showcasing spectacular photography, tales from the Rounds, and the history of each - as well as invaluable information to help with planning and preparing - this book is a must for anyone embarking on one (or all!) of these iconic Rounds.

Known to mountain runners as three of the most difficult 24-hour challenges in the world, each Big Round is a long-distance classic in the history and culture of 'fell' or hill running. Collectively, the 'Big 3' take in 113 mountain summits (including the highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland), over 25,000m (83,000ft) of ascent and nearly 300km (183 miles) across three of Britain's most distinct mountain ranges - the Snowdonia National Park in Wales, the Lake District National Park in England, and a vast area of Lochaber in the highlands of Scotland.
