  • 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, including Jasmin Paris, Nicky Spinks, Charlie Ramsay, Jim Mann and Paddy Buckley.
    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.
    This large 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.
