Bob Graham Round - Rob Hughes - 21 June

I'll be setting off on a clockwise round at 1.15am in the early hours of Saturday 21st Jun 08.  I've hopefully got a support team coming together but if anyone is free to pace or simply a fancies weekend in cumbria please get in touch 07887 501842 or aimtowin@hotmail.com .  I've got the Achille Ratti hut on Dunmail Raise booked so there's lots of bunk space available for the friday and saturday nights.  If it's a scorching day being handed a water bottle across the tops where there's few water sources could make all the diff

It slowed me down quite a bit, but the pain had  subsided by the time I got to CP4 (a food stop) so I carried on.

Finished in 6h 5m - disappointing.
