Lakeland endeavours

This is the personal website of Peter McDonald. ​I have a significant interest in feats of endeavour relating to fell-walking and fell-running in the Lake District, namely the Lake District 24-Hour Fell Record and the Bob Graham Round.

At present, the material on this site relates to:

1. A Tribute to the Round, a short book which describes a tour of the fells and route of the Bob Graham Round. The book is free to preview on this site and full physical copies are available for purchase, with all profits donated to Keswick Mountain Rescue Team. So far, over £2,000 has be raised for the team. Further detail is here

2. My attempt to record a comprehensive history of the Lake District 24-Hour Fell Record, from the early nineteenth century to the present day. Further detail is here

I am currently updating '42 Peaks: The Story of the Bob Graham Club' on behalf of the Bob Graham Club. With a fair wind, we hope to publish a fully revised edition this summer.
