THE Bob Graham Round is one of the toughest challenges in the UK, involving a massive 66-mile run, taking in 27,000ft over 42 of the highest and iconic Lake District peaks, all of which needs to be completed in under 24 hours.

And on the 1st of July Supported by family and his training partners, and facing tough and adverse weather condition, Ian Hayburn managed to successfully complete his challenge in a fantastic time of 22 hours and 41 minutes, to officially become a member of the illustrious BGR 24 Hour Club.

Afterwards, Ian said: "This challenge has dominated my life for the last few months so I'm looking forward to getting back to training at the club and doing some 'normal' racing, after a bit of a rest that is."
