Its been 2 and a half years since we have been able to deliver the Keswick Mountain Festival Trail races, but thankfully we managed to make it happen last weekend. This race report is a general sum up of the weekends activities.
Charlie gives a little insight into his race in the Lakeland 50 and why he thinks its such an epic race.
What a fantastic weekend of trail running, trail racing and records being smashed to pieces!
Mountain Run have been guiding Bob Graham Rounds since 2016. Silva have come on board with our BGR guiding service and supplied us with 3 x Trail Speed 3XT's, with a combined output of 2400 lumens! Silva and Mountain Run are literally lighting up the fells!
Damian asked Charlie (our head guide) in 2015 if he thought it was possible to run a Bob Graham Round without training on the route... Damian wrote for Outdoor Fitness about his experience. Damian seems to know a thing or 2 about running long distances.....
We have some very special guests joining the Mountain Run Team for our 2018 skills weekends.

With an extremely difficult weekend of weather it took a cool and calm team to deliver the KMF 2017 events this year, here's the race directors report from Charlie to update you on the weekends activities.
The Ramsay Round is a 56 mile circular route taking in 24 summits, 23 of them munro's, over 28'500ft of ascent along the way around Glen Nevis and Lock Treig.
