Registering an Attempt
The Bob Graham Club's role is to promote safe long distance traverses of the fells and its main activity is the administration of the Round itself. Applicants should register with the Membership Secretary, Bob Wightman, (using the form linked to from the drop down list) before an attempt and must be accompanied at every summit for verification purposes. See the ratification page for what information is required to verify your round
Please note: As of 1st January 2020 The Club will no longer accept applications for membership where paid for or professional guided services have been used. See this page for more information.
The Club's Guidance Notes
Attempts on the Bob Graham Round are a private matter for the individual or individuals who wishes or wish to take up the challenge. The Club's role is to provide information, encouragement and advice and to record all registered attempts.
Since the formation of the Club in 1971, membership has grown. There are many people 'out there' with experience of the Bob Graham Round, whether doing the Round itself, pacing, supporting on the day or organising and logistics, many within those athletic clubs with a core of members who have their 'Feet in the Clouds'. The Sources page will point you to some of the places to get further help and guidance.
As of 1st January 2020 paid/guided Rounds are no longer acceptable for Club membership. See this page for more information.
The Club's Guidance Notes are short and to the point and cover only the essentials. Please read those Notes and observe both the letter of them and their spirit. They may be downloaded from the link below. The rest is up to you ...
